Chapter 1a of the immigration directorate instructions deals with applications for fee waiver and refunds.
The Home Office has completed a review of its ECHR application fee waiver policy in light of the judgment of the Administrative Court in the case of R (Carter) v Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWHC 2603 (Admin).
You can read the new version of the fee waiver policy for FLR(FP) and FLR(O) forms policy.
This means that applicants who applied for a fee waiver but did not meet the requirements under the previous policy, and whose application for a fee waiver was placed temporarily on hold, will now receive a final decision on their fee waiver application. If they wish to provide further evidence that they meet the terms of the new policy, they will be given an opportunity to do so.
New applications for an application fee waiver will be decided under the new policy.
