Changes to Australia’s visa application charge structure

Department of Immigration has announced new visa application Fee from 1 July 2013.
Under the proposed changes the Visa Application Fee will be made up of:

First instalment

• A base application charge: $3060
• An additional applicant charge for Second Applicant (such as spouse): $1530
• An additional applicant charge for any Applicant under 18 years old (such as children): $765

Second instalment

In addition, for some visas you might also have to pay a further visa application charge. This can be paid after you have made your application but before the visa can be granted. This second instalment will not be required if your application is refused.

Why is the department introducing new charges?

The pricing restructure will bring Australia's visa pricing in line with similar countries such as Canada, the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
