Explanation of New Australian visa charges system based on number of applicants and the new Subsequent Temporary Application Charge

From the 1 July 2013 there will be some changes to the total cost of applying for a visa for Australia. The major changes are:

• The Visa Application Charge (VAC) for the main applicant has increased for some visas.

• There is now a fee for each dependent applicant.

• If there is the option to lodge your visa over the internet and you choose not to lodge this way, you may be charged a fee of $80.

• There is a new fee called the Subsequent Temporary Application Charge which is $700. You may be charged this fee if you are applying for a temporary residency visa listed in Table 1 AND you have previously applied for one of the temporary visas listed on Table 2.  Refer to tables listed at page 4 of this link.

http://www.immi.gov.au/fees-charges/_pdf/visa-pricing-table.pdf

 If this fee is applicable in your situation, then it needs to be paid by each individual in the visa application. You will not be charged this fee if you are applying for a temporary visa from outside Australia, or if this is the first time you are applying for a temporary visa in Australia. This fee does not apply to bridging visas or permanent visas.

 

Here are three examples of how the new fees are calculated:

Example 1: Application for a subclass 190 skilled – nominated visa for a family with two adults and two children (under 18 years old).

Main applicant VAC
plus            
$3060              
Dependant spouse/partner
plus
$1530
First dependant child
plus
$765
Second dependant child $765
Total fees $6120


If an applicant over 18 does not have function English a second instalment fee of $4250 will also be charged.

Example 2: Application for a subclass 457 temporary work visa for a couple who are both over 18 years old. This couple are currently holding 457 visas that they applied for in Australia. 

They are therefore required to pay the subsequent temporary application fee for each application.

Main applicant VAC
plus            
$900            
Dependant spouse/partner
plus
$900
Main applicant subsequent temporary application charge
plus
$700
Dependant applicant subsequent temporary application charge $700
Total fees $3200

 

Example 3: Application for a subclass 820/801 partner visa for an adult and one child under 18 years old.

Main applicant
plus            
$3975
Dependent child
plus
$995
Total fees $4970
