Abstract: This article examines the political economy of charging regimes within immigration control in the UK, focusing its attention on UKVI fees and charges, carrier sanctions, charges related to accessing services and civil penalties administered though immigration enforcement. While distinct charging regimes have been analysed in their individual guises, to date there has been little substantive analysis bringing these regimes together and locating them at the centre of its enquiry. Drawing on data obtained through the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this paper consequently examines the functions and prevalence of charging regimes, arguing that they contribute to an economy of financial power which has significant implications for understandings of criminalisation and immigration enforcement.
