The current fee for an application for a foreign national identity card made separately from an immigration application (e.g. for damaged or lost cards) for non-EEA nationals is £30. There is no additional charge for a foreign national identity card issued as part of a visa application made by a non-EEA national. The cost of making a visa application to enter the UK varies from category to category.
It is intended that the fee for an identity card issued to UK and EEA nationals in 2009-10 will be £30.
We review fees annually to ensure that they continue to contribute to the costs of an application. Fees for future years have not yet been set.
