About the consultation

The purpose of this consultation, issued by the Population Office, is to seek the views of members of the public, businesses and other organisations on the introduction of fees under the Control of Housing and Work (Jersey) Law, and the level of any fees.

The new law will be administered by the Population Office and the annual costs of administering the new law will be £900,000 per year – slightly less than the cost of administering the existing laws.

The Migration Advisory Group and Council of Ministers have said that the costs of managing immigration should not be met by the taxpayer as they are now, but by user pays fees instead. For example, by:
  • migrants that come to Jersey
  • businesses that bring migrants into Jersey
  • visiting contractors and traders
This consultation outlines a range of possible fee options, and asks for comments. At this stage, these are merely options outlined to obtain comment from respondents.
