    Updated 30 June 2015 from ukcisa.org.ukFrom 5 July 2015, the Tier 4 application forms will automatically calculate how much of the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) applicants have to pay. This change will affect the Tier 4 application system on 4 July 2015.
    • If you are applying in the UK then you should complete your Tier 4 application and pay the IHS before 6:59 in the morning on Saturday 4 July, otherwise you should start a new application after this time. If you try to continue with an existing application after this time then your application might be rejected and/or you might have to pay the IHS twice.
    • If you are applying overseas then you should pay the IHS and submit your Tier 4 application before 5:59 in the evening (UK time). If you continue with an existing application after this time then it might be rejected and/or you might have to pay the IHS twice. Therefore if you are not able to complete an existing application before this time you should start a new application.
    If you think you have paid the IHS twice you should check whether you have received two separate payment confirmations. if you are in the UK you can request a refund via the IHS payment website [^]; if you are overseas you should notify the visa application centre (VAC) when you attend your biometric appointment and ask them to process a refund.If you are starting a new application then we would recommend waiting until 5 July 2015 to do so in order to avoid any problems with the application forms (in a separate communication the Home Office has said that the application form in the UK will be operational again from 4:01 in the morning on Sunday 5 July 2015). However, if you are in the UK and your current leave expires on 4 July 2015 then you should complete your new application before 6:59am on Saturday 4 July.If you have concerns about how this will affect your application then you should speak to an adviser at your institution as soon as possible. If you are unable to speak to an adviser then you may wish to call our advice line.

    yes but you have to select " uk gov. Scholarship" student in order tp proceed as the fee would b waived.
    Remember, you have one chance so make sure your visa application is really really complete with all required documents. Triple check each section and answers before you hit "complete" application.
    God luck to us all.

    Hey, I received a newsletter from the school about changes in the visa processing from July this year. Apparently when applying for the visa, we will be issued a sticker in our respective home countries which will be valid for 30 days, but during application we will have to choose where we will like to pick our full visa upon arrival in UK, that is whether we pick from our schools or nearest post office. this will be issued along with the biometric residence permit.
    So i am sure because of all this and MORE!!, that they have not contacted us yet.
    But don't worry, I'm sure it will be soon.

    Hi, has anyone here made a visa application after 5th July when the surcharge was apparently consolidated with online visa applications for tier 4 applicants?
    The IHS portal is not working for me and I started and completed my application on 6th, had my interview yesterday,13th.
    the officer there asked me if I paid the health surcharge to which I said I was unable to because the system directed that the surcharge is paid in line with the online application and i received no indication to pay the surcharge online and there was no payment gateway for this.
    Can anyone please help with this? Will this affect the decision?

    Did you select "UK govt scholarship" when you were applying.

    I have done mine, and when select UK govt scholarship sub group, the IHS surcharge is waived completely hence it shouldn't affect your application.
