Australian partner visa fee increase

Published: 01/07/2010

The Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has announced an increase in the visa application fees. Beginning 1 July 2010, fees for the partner visas, including prospective marriage visa (subclass 300), temporary spouse/unmarried partner visa (subclass 820), and permanent spousal/de facto partner visa (subclass 801) will increase.

The visa application fees for offshore prospective marriage (fiancée) visa and temporary marriage and de facto partner visa will increase from previous AUD$1,705 to $1,735. The onshore partner visa application fees for those who hold a valid subclass 300 prospective marriage visa will increase to AUD$840 (those applicants who initially entered Australia on a valid fiancée visa, married their sponsor and do not currently hold a valid subclass 300 visa should expect to pay UD$1,060 to adjust their status in Australia). All other applicants wishing to obtain a temporary partner visa onshore will be required to pay the processing fee of AUD$2,575.

This new fee will be in effect for onshore and offshore partner visa applications beginning 1 July 2010. Visa application fees are payable in Australian Dollars at the time of submission. If you are applying outside Australia, payment must be in the currency accepted by the Australian High Commission, Embassy or Consulate, where the application is being lodged.
