Visa Fees to be increased in New Budget

Robert Pearce | Monday, May 16th, 2011
he Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) will be increasing a number of visa fees as part of the new federal budget.
The increases which will take effect on July 1st will see many application fees increase by as much as 15 percent in order to “help offset the wider costs associated with the operation of the migration and temporary entrant program.” 
The fee increases will not apply Australian tourist visas and Australian tourist visas. While the increases have not been officially announced, there have been some projections.
The Permanent Skilled Migration visa is currently $2,575 and could be increased to as much as $2,961 while the Permanent Family Migration which is currently $1,735 could go up to $1,995.
