Guyanese attorney blast hike in Bajan immigration fees

Stabroek News - Guyana: "(Barbados Nation) “Short-sighted!” is how attorney-at-law Latchman Kissoon views the recent hike in immigration fees. The increases will see Caricom nationals paying in some cases twice more than they previously did for services from the Immigration Department.

Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler announced the increase during his Budget presentation two weeks ago. He said at the time that Government was seeking to raise an additional Bds$4 million in revenue from the Immigration Department this financial year and this would be earned in fees charged."
