Government increases all Australian Visa application charges by 3%

Following Australia’s Migration Amendment Regulations 2022, the Government has also increased all Visa Application Charges (VACs) from their 2021‑22 baseline amounts by the 2022-23 forecast Consumer Price Index (CPI) of 3.00 per cent.

Visa applications lodged on or after July 1st 2022 are subject to higher charges.

VAC is the amount of money in Australian dollars (AUD) that must be paid for a visa application.

Visa costs depend on the date when the Department has received your application. If there is a price increase between the date you lodge your application and the date the Department receive your application, you will need to pay the new application charge.
