Australian Immigration Fee increase July 2019

The Australian Government announced the annual visa application charge increases. The visa application increases take effect from 1 July 2019, except those for the new Skilled Regional visas which will come into effect with these new subclasses on 16 November 2019.

The increases reflect the 2.25% CPI increase published in the 2019/20 Budget Paper No 1 AND the 5.4% increase announced in the Visa Application Charge – Uplift announced as part of the 2019/20 Federal Budget, rounded to the nearest $5.
