The Isle of Man has launched a public consultation on a proposal to raise fees for immigration services and applications for British citizenship, to bring them into line with those charged by the UK Government.
The Manx Government described the fee increases as modest and noted that it has not raised fees for the last four years.
The Government said: "Modest fee increases are proposed for businesses and the categories of skilled migrants the Isle of Man is seeking to attract in order to grow the economy. A larger share of costs will be applied to those who derive the most benefits from the immigration system, such as the right to settle permanently or to obtain British citizenship."
The Government has invited comments by March 31, 2016. The increased fees are proposed to be effective from April 6, 2016.
