  1. Don’t mind paying it. It’s a one off payment for the admin costs and to get the residence card so it’s fine.

  2. What happens to EEA citizens like Norwegians? We have the same rights as EU, but technically we are not EU…

  8. The test I apply to this is whether an EU citizen applying to take up their right to live and work in another EU country would have to pay a similar fee. In the majority of EU countries, the answer is not only yes but that the fee would be even higher. I, therefore, don’t see any problem at all.

    Likewise, we are extending a right to stay which most EU countries don’t even offer to citizens of other EU countries .. just look at countries like, for example, Denmark where, if you don’t find a job within three months you are told to pack your bags and go home. If the UK had applied the rules of the EU, in the same manner as most other countries, we most likely wouldn’t even be talking about Brexit.

  11. If immigration fees were not a total money making scheme then I wouldn’t see a problem. But when you see that the cost of naturalisation in the UK is in fact about 75% profit, you do start to wonder… https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/jun/24/reduce-home-office-fees-say-mps-campaigners

    Meanwhile, applying for citizenship in France costs you a mere €55. Yup, you read that right.

  16. I disagree, the fees are reasonable for administration charges, as uk citizens have to pay admin fees in eu and non-eu countries, the existing fees are cheap and are fair

  18. Agree … my French wife applied a year ago and they kept 65£ and got refused because she had to stopped working full time mum and I’m the only one working and provider fo my family . !! I called home office and they. Told me that she was not qualifying because she is not working after being working more than 10 years … Howe we have 3 little ones and this is the only reason she stopped working … just ridiculous response by the home office + they told me that she should get a private health insurance and reapply and maybe she could get it … we are thinking to go back to France 🇫🇷 we really feel like this will only bring suffering and a lot of frustration.. hope we don’t have to pay again for this stupid resident card .. this is just not fear !!!

  19. The mayor is getting desperate as the reality of exiting the EU without a deal because of his parties lack of leadership on the matter. £65 is not a huge amount to ask when you have access to the NHS, etc etc for the rest of your life.

  20. Stop playing politics with Brexit. Why should be a preferential treatment scrap £1050 ILR fees as well.
