LONDON: The amount paid by temporary migrants to use the NHS will double in order to raise an additional £220m a year for the NHS, the government has announced.

The immigration health surcharge is paid by people from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who are seeking to live in the UK for six months or more to work, study or join family.

It will rise from £200 to £400 per year, with the discounted rate for students and those on the Youth Mobility Scheme increasing from £150 to £300, the Department of Health said.
