Visa Application Charge Increases 1st September

 

News just coming in that there will be an increase in many visa application charges as of the 1st September 2013!

As an example the Skilled Independent basic charge will increase from $3060 to $3520.

 

Primary Applicant $3,520

Secondary Applicant >18 $1,760

Secondary Applicant <18 $880

This along with the additional applicant fees introduced in August will be a real blow to many would-be visa applicants.

Wow they are ramping it up aren't they. With this and the new school fees for 457 holders in WA it's getting a nightmare

According to the news report they suggest other states may follow

"The (WA state) Treasurer defended the decision, which has sparked fears those students may desert the public system in favour of private schools, by saying that New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory had introduced similar fees of $4000 per student."

NSW and ACT have charged for many years at the moment there is only Vic and Qld who don't.
