Fees impact assessment


Part 6, and Schedule 8, provide for the Secretary of State to enable third parties, including carriers and port operator staff to undertake embarkation checks on passengers departing from the UK.

They also contain powers to direct carriers and port operators to make arrangements for a designated person to conduct embarkation checks. Part 6 makes provision for fees to be charged for immigration applications and other functions. It also amends the Secretary of State’s power to deprive naturalised persons of their British citizenship if she is satisfied deprivation is conducive to the public good because the person’s conduct has been seriously prejudicial to the vital interests of the United Kingdom, any of the Islands or any British overseas territory.
