An application fee for the replacement of a biometric residence permit (BRP) is £56 and uptake of the super premium service in addition to this is completely optional.

The super premium service is an optional service to expedite the application process if an applicant needs a decision within one working day and is available to various types of immigration applications for a fixed fee. As such, £800 was set to reflect the benefits of the service offered, alongside the need to run an effective BIC System. As an optional service applying to a variety of immigration applications it has not had a separate Impact Assessment.

Fees are usually reviewed on an annual basis, with a view to providing resources necessary to running the Border Immigration and Citizenship system.
