I am intending to apply for a UK spouse visa on the 1st of November but my wife cannot pay the fee with her card. In Tunisia, my country, it has a closed economy; we can't pay online for anything. I was told to pay in cash at TLScontact Tunisia, but I don't know if I can do that and, if so, what to do on the application form. Is there any option to skip paying online and pay just the immigration health surcharge directly to the National Health Service?

  • For the sake of clarification, the immigration health surcharge is not paid directly to NHS even when you pay online. UKVI collects the surcharge and the Government allocates that to the NHS. Unfortunately I don't know the answer to the payment method part, sorry.

  • Also, if I remember correctly, you will have to pay any visa application fee after paying for the IHS. Does your question intend to cover both, or do they subject to different treatment with regard to payment method?
