Australian Visa Application Charges - rising (2015) July

These adjustments include:

• A price increase in line with inflation (2.3 per cent) on visas which face strong international competition or have been impacted by recent price increases. These include special visas within the Permanent Migration Skill Stream, Skilled Graduate, Temporary Long Stay Business (Subclass 457), Visitor and Student visa streams.

• A 5 per cent price increase on visas which continue to see strong demand despite previous increases, or are likely to see a sustained volume increase through policy changes under consideration.These include special visas within the Temporary Resident Short Term Business and Entertainment visas,

Working Holiday visas, Resident Return and Retirement Investor visas, and Contributory Parent visa streams.

• A 10 per cent price increase on special visas within the Other Family (Remaining Relative, Carer and Aged Dependent Relative) visas, and (non-contributory) Parent visa streams where the underlying demand is not expected to be impacted by the price increase.

• A 50 per cent increase to the Significant Investor Visa (SIV) stream in the permanent migration Skill stream category where the VAC is a very small component of the minimum $5 million of investments required under the visa regulation.

Electronic Travel Authorities (ETA), eVisitor and Refugee and Humanitarian visas will not be affected by these changes. A comprehensive list of VAC price increases is included below.
