Visa charges from 1 July 2013 for visas to Australia.
Visa Charges: the visa application charge is the amount of money in Australian dollars (AUD) that must be paid for a visa application, unless there is an exemption. The visa application charge might be broken into instalments, with one part payable at the time of application, and another before grant.
Depending on your circumstances, there will be different types of visa charges included in the total visa application charge amount that is payable at the time of lodging a visa application. The new visa charges that apply from 1 July 2013 will introduce charges for additional applicants in a combined application, subsequent temporary applications applied for in Australia and a single charge for certain visa applications that are not lodged through online service.
From 1 July 2013 a number of components might make up the total first instalment visa application charge.
To make a valid visa application after 1 July 2013, the following components might apply:
- the base application charge
- an additional applicant charge
- a non-internet application charge
- a subsequent temporary application charge.
The first instalment of the visa application charge is the total of all of the components that must be paid for your visa application.
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.
