If you plan on travelling to Australia soon, you need to get yourself an Australian visa. However, not everyone is eligible to apply for one of these valuable travel documents. In fact, hundreds of thousands of people are rejected when they try to obtain a visa for Australia.In light of the recent attacks both at home and abroad, there has been increased scrutiny placed upon the screening for people who are attempting to participate in the Visa program. We feel that it is important enough to inform the general public about new legal services available that can assist in dealing with situations related to criminal investigation or criminal activity.
The Australian Government is setting up a new online system that will make it easier to apply for your visa.
How Much Are Visa For Australia
Australia Visa Installment Charges
When applying for an Australian visa, applicants are required to pay the application fee in two installments. These installments have to be completed at different stages of the application process.
First Installment Visa Fee
The first installment includes four different fees:
- Base application fee.
- Additional applicant charge.
- Subsequent temporary application charge (only specific visas).
- Non-internet application charge (only specific cases).
The first installment should be completed when the initial visa application is submitted.
Second Installment Visa Fee
For some visa types, if the application is successful, you may have to pay a second installment before you can receive the visa. In cases where your visa is rejected or your application is withdrawn, you don’t have to complete the second installment. This fee varies from visa to visa and for some visa types it can be very high- the Australian authorities will notify you when it’s time to pay this fee.
