Visa Application Fee Increases

Visa Application Fee Increases

Applying for visas will soon become more costly as the Department of Home Affairs has announced that visa application fees will increase by 5.4% for all visa applications (apart from subclass 600 Visitor visas) that are submitted on or after 1 July 2019.

Fee increases for some commonly applied for visas are listed below:

visa Current Fee Fee from 1 July 2019 Approximate increase
Partner and prospective marriage $7,160 $7,547 $387
General Skilled Migration $3,755 $3,958 $203
TSS – Medium and Long Term Skill list $2,455 $2,587 $132
TSS – Short Term Skill List $1,175 $1,238 $63

Student Visa $575 $606 $31
Temporary Graduate $1,535 $1,618 $83

Any visa applications submitted before 1 July 2019 will not be affected by the changes, so if possible, we suggest submitting your visa application before the end of June 2019 to avoid paying additional fees.
