Introduction and Thank You for taking part

This is a public survey about the rising cost of visas and the settlement process and the impact it is having on migrants in the UK. Your survey response will be an opportunity for you to share with us anonymously about how the cost of visas and settlement have impacted you and your family. This is to help us shape Migrant Voice’s campaign against extortionate visa costs and should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

Migrant Voice is a migrant-led national organisation building a community of migrant voices to speak for ourselves and call for justice for all. We are campaigning against the extortionate cost of visas and lengthy settlement routes by calling out the impact it has on millions of people who live and work in the UK. This survey will be used to bring your stories and experiences to life, and inform our campaign, showcasing the impact on our communities.
Who can take part?

Anyone who is 18 years of age and above, who is currently or has recently had to pay visa and immigration fees in the UK for themselves or their family can take part. You may complete this survey on behalf of someone who is paying visa fees.

Taking part in the survey is voluntary and you can leave the survey at any time and withdraw your data anytime before 30 September 2024 by simply emailing and quoting your unique reference ID that you choose when you start.

By taking part in this survey, you will have the opportunity to be entered into an optional draw to receive a LovetoShop voucher worth £25. For more information, and to enter please continue the survey to the end.
What will happen to the information I give?

Your responses will be treated with confidentiality, [anonymously] unless you grant permission to be named.

The purpose is to gather data, information and human stories for our campaign. This may be presented as anonymous data in a report or campaign materials [for example, '60% of those surveyed said they had paid more than £5000 and were impacted in the following ways...'] or anonymised quotes of your reflections on the visa system.

You will be asked at the end of the survey if you wish to support and be part of our campaign in a variety of ways – as part of this you will be asked if you want to share your contact details with us at Migrant Voice.
