I am considering putting in an application to get the Endorsement soon, I wanted to know if you pay for the healthcare surcharge at the beginning of the application or after getting the endorsement Letter from tech nation? If yes, how many years do you pay for as the UK reserves the power to grant you 3 or 5 years visa duration?
you pay for the IHS after your endorsement. What you pay is dependent on the number of years you are applying for.
You pay for the surcharge during your stage 2 application. And you can may for 3 or 5 years once (depending on your type of endorsement) or you can pay on a yearly basis. If you choose pay on yearly basis, you have to pay the registration fees every year.
