Australian Visa Fee's - latest news - 1st July 2013 DIAC changes


Australian Migration application charges are to change. Would be Australian Skilled Visa applicants and all our current customers should note that as of 1 July 2013, all visa applicants in most subclasses will be required to pay the following additional charges when they are invited to lodge their visa application online:

  • Base application charge – this charge is the amount the main visa applicant will have to pay for their visa application. It is currently A$3,060.
  • Additional applicant charge – this is the charge paid by each additional applicant included in your application (with an exemption for newborns, see below). Additional applicants are your spouse and children. The amount varies according to the age of the applicant and the visa subclass. This charge is added to the base application charge, the main applicant does not pay the additional applicant charge. The fee for your spouse (additional applicant over 18) is A$1,530 this also applies for any children 18 or over. If children are under 18 (at time of lodgement) then the fee is A$765.
  • Please note DIAC will also gradually be introducing more non-internet application charges – a charge of A$80 will apply for selected visas when the option to lodge and pay for the application online exists but an applicant chooses not to. Paid per application not per person.
  • Adding newborn babies to an existing application - If you have applied for a visa and you have a newborn child before the application is decided, your child can be added to your application. In these circumstances, the additional applicant charge for the newborn child is Nil.
