Visa Lodgement Charges for all visas EXCEPT Visitor Visas, will increase by 5.4% from the 1st July 2019. This was announced in the Annual Budget, in May.
Here’s a snapshot of the impact on the most common visa subclasses. Only the Primary Visa Application Charge is listed; but the increase will apply to the secondary applicant charges as well.
How can you avoid the Price Increase?
There’s only one way. Apply before the 1st July if you can.
