The Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) is a contribution to the National Health Service (NHS) of £400 per person per year that individuals applying for a first UK visa of more than six months or renewing their UK visa are required to pay. Full details of the IHS can be found on the GOV.UK webpages
The University of Warwick offers a loan scheme to support new and existing employees with the cost of the IHS. Only in exceptional circumstances, where a case has approved by the Head of Department and by the HR Department, can taxable reimbursement of the IHS be provided.
New staff who are eligible for a relocation package may claim the IHS as part of the package provided certain conditions are met.
