Hi

My wife is about to apply for an EA permit, but she will need a Immigration Health surcharge first to get the IHS reference number.

When I try to calculate the cost of my surcharge for my wife, It asks what sort of visa route I am and my visa type and my visa expiration date. I hold a dutch passport I don't have any visa whatsoever.

I have no idea what to click they all mostly seem to add up to £600

But the government website says other applications are £200 and £150 for students. am I clicking something wrong or?....

Please help as I am confused and my wife is awaiting on me to solve this matter.

Thank you god bless.

Thanks for replying jopppa

Oh really?

But Joppa today my solicitor said you will need to also include a IHS.

I cant find anywhere on the internet that says EEA are exempt from this.

Thank you :p

You don’t need to get an IHS reference number or pay the healthcare surcharge if:
you’re applying for a visitor visa
you’re applying for a visa (from outside the UK) for 6 months or less
you’re applying for indefinite leave to remain
you’re a diplomat or a member of a visiting armed forces and not subject to immigration control
you’re a family member of a European national with European Union treaty rights
