Immigration will be extended for a shorter period and replaced with a stand-alone immigration specific contract. This will enable us to implement changes resulting from the Nationality and Borders Bill. The length of the extension will be communicated as soon as agreed.
The MoJ will be consulting in spring 2022 on new immigration fees as a result of the Nationality and Borders Bill. The new immigration contract will be tendered based on these proposals, once finalised.
How will the further extension work?
We will be writing to all current civil contract providers to confirm our intentions and formally issue extension offers.
