Looking to lodge a visa application relatively soon? Your visa application could be affected!

The Department of Home Affairs has announced its annual increase to visa lodgement fees for a large majority of visa classes. However, the Visitor
(subclass 600) visa will be unaffected.

Most visa types will face an increase of 5.4%, taking effect on the 1st of July 2019.
