Part 8 of the act reduces demand for migrant labour in jobs that can be filled by domestic workers and consolidates charging arrangements for Home Office services by:
introducing an immigration skills charge for employers who preferentially employed skilled migrants
enabling civil registration to become financially self-supporting through fees, rather than relying on central government funding
allowing the Registrar General to receive funding, from the registrars and superintendent registrars, for the services they currently provide for free
maximising the flexibility of the passport fees framework to allow for cross-subsidy and over-cost recovery powers, while keeping down the cost of a standard passport application
