For international job relocation to UK is visa fee fully allowable when relocating or is it to be included in the £8,000 relief.? I have tried reading the registration but there is part i do not seem to understand which says "foreign national will be able to get the travelling costs as well as £8,000 of removal expenses tax-free." May thanks

There are special travel rules in the 490 booklet chapter 7, here:

Special tax rules on foreign travel (490: Chapter 7)    .

If they apply then the cost of the visa under the special rules is tax free, if they don’t apply
then its just the removal expenses that are tax free up to £8,000 limit  .

Thank you.
