Recent changes to the fee structure of both onshore and offshore Australian visa applications came into effect on Wednesday 1st July 2009, having initially been announced in late June, and apply to all foreign nationals looking to obtain a fiancée, partner or marriage visa for entry into Australia.
The fee changes will see the onshore subclass 820, subclass 801, subclass 829 and subclass 814 visa applications increase considerably, from its previous AUD$2105 to AUD$2525. For offshore fiancée, spouse, and partner visa applications, there are also increased fees, going up from AUD$1420 to AUD$1705.
If you entered Australia on a subclass 300 prospective marriage visa that is still valid and have since married your sponsor, you should expect to pay the processing fee of AUD$825 to the DIAC to change your immigration status to a spouse visa.
Please note that the processing fee is non-refundable regardless of the outcome of your application.
