Visa Application Charges (VAC) 

This page provides general information regarding Visa Application Charges for people who want to visit, work, study, or live in Australia and for employers sponsoring skilled people to work in Australia.

The VAC changes from time to time. The cost of your visa is dependent on the date we receive your application. If there is a price increase between the date you lodge your application and the date we receive your application, you will need to pay the new application charge.
