UK Introduces Health Surcharge For All Non Europeans

Recommended Posts

This was sent to me from the FCO and is from the Philippine Embassy but relates to 'all non European nationals' coming from overseas on a visa with intentions to stay in the UK for longer than 6 months. This may affect some members here.

The health surcharge will be £200 per year and £150 per year for students. It will be payable upon submission of their visa application online.

Maybe a misunderstanding here, seems to me it could affect some members whose wives are non Europeans and intending on going to the UK for longer than 6 months, I personally wouldn't refer to them as scumbags!

A big misunderatanding Dave. I'm talking about these EU Bulgarians, Romany's etc that are in the UK for the benefit system. They should NOT get healthcare either.

It shouldn't affect anybody who's Married to a British national. They should be ENTITLED to it.

It's not fair Matt. But then again if you were from ANY EU Country apart from the UK and living in the UK you wouldn't even need to apply for a visa for your Wife. It's FREE AND EASY FOR ALL NON BRITISH CITIZENS LIVING IN THE UK TO TAKE IN WHOEVER THEY WANT FROM OUTSIDE THE EU.
