Australian Visa Charges from 1 July 2013


The Australian Department of Immigration has announced its new visa pricing arrangements which come into effect on 1 July 2013.

One change involves the change from a single charge at the time of application, to a “charge per applicant” in an individual or combined application.

The visa application charge might be broken into instalments, with one part payable at the time of application, and another before the grant of the visa.

If you lodge and pay the total first instalment charge for your visa application and it is received by us before 1 July 2013, then these new charges will not apply to your application.

The proposed Visa Pricing Table is also available in PDF for printing.
See: Proposed Visa Pricing Table (243KB PDF file)
