Australian Partner Visa Fees Significantly Increase

Published: 01/07/2011

The Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has announced an increase in the visa application fees. Effective 1 July 2011, fees for the partner visas, including prospective marriage visa (subclass 300), temporary spouse/unmarried partner visa (subclass 820/309), and permanent spousal/de facto partner visa (subclass 801/100) will increase.
The new fee for a subclass 300 prospective marriage visa or subclass 309 spouse visa lodged offshore is AUD$1,995 (previously AUD$1,735). The onshore partner visa application fees for those who hold a valid subclass 300 prospective marriage visa will increase to AUD$965 (previously AUD$840). All other applicants wishing to obtain a temporary partner visa onshore will be required to pay the processing fee of AUD$2,960 (previously AUD$2,575).
The new fees will be in effect for onshore and offshore partner visa applications beginning 1 July 2011. Visa application fees are payable in Australian Dollars at the time of submission. If you are applying for a fiancée visa or partner visa outside Australia, payment may need to be made in the currency accepted by the Australian High Commission, Embassy or Consulate where the application is being lodged.
The DIAC processing fee is non-refundable regardless of the outcome of the application.
