Increases to Australian Visa Charge from 1st July

The Australian visa application charge varies depending on the type of visa being applied for. The visa application charge covers the processing costs associated with assessing the visa application, as well as the cost of delivering the visa decision.

Visa Application Costs (VACs) will increase by six percentage points for visa applications, as well as an additional 15 percentage points for select visitor and temporary visa subclasses and an additional 40 percentage points for business innovation and investment visas.

The Pacific Engagement Visa and Pacific Australia Labour Mobility scheme will be exempt from the VAC cost increases.

Through this change, the government is expecting to generate additional revenue for improving visa processing and other government priorities.
