Visa application prices are rising to fund Australia’s border protection efforts and national security.

Many family visas will be going up by 10%. Visa subclasses with high demand such as the Working Holiday visa and the Retirement Investor visa will be increasing by 5%. Even the Skilled Graduate, Visitor, Student, Subclass 457 Temporary Work visa and many Permanent Skilled visas will be increasing by 2.3%.

It is imperative to apply before 1 July 2015 to ensure that you are not affected by the price hike.  Please don’t try to do this yourself as hastily lodging your own application before 1 July 2015 may lead in refusals, which will end up costing you more money.

Please contact the experienced team of migration lawyers at The Migration Place to ensure your application is lodged quickly and to a high standard.
