Changes to Australia Visa Application Charges

Jan 18, 2012
The Australian government increased some visa application charges (VAC) effective January 1, 2012.

Please note that most charges are increasing by five to 15 per cent. It has also proposed that as of July 2013, additional fees will be levied for each dependent to be included in a visa application.

Currently, the visa application fee covers all dependents included in a visa application.

The Australia government also proposes additional charges to be progressively implemented over the next 18 months. These charges will be added for:
  • longer duration visas;
  • paper applications where an online option is available; and
  • optional services, such as visa labels which are not currently required as the Australian immigration system is electronically monitored.
