Petition Lower the cost of British Citizenship applications to £372.

The government should lower the fees of citizenship to make it more accessible for the people eligible. It only costs the Home Office £372 to process the application.

More details

To gain settled status people need to live in the UK for at least 5 years and demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the English language and British culture. After settlement, they can then apply for Citizenship. These requirements are perfectly reasonable but the cost is not. This fee does not reduce the number of immigrants or reduce the impact on social services. It simply suppresses millions of people who pay tax. Why are we supporting a system of taxation without representation?
