British Nationality: Children

Question for Home Office

UIN HL6937, tabled on 14 March 2022

To ask Her Majesty's Government by how much the revenue raised from the fee charged to register children's entitlement to citizenship exceeds the administrative costs of processing such applications for (1) looked after children, and (2) those who are not looked after, for each year since the current fee level was set.

The Home Office does not hold the information in the format requested. We do not have a separate code or field for fees collected for children registering their entitlement to citizenship under the British Nationality Act 1981.

Details of the fee payable and estimated unit cost from the date the current fees to register as a British citizen became effective, (from 8th October 2018) can be accessed via the following link: Visa fees transparency data - GOV.UK (
