[Expert Tip] 1st July New Fees Comparison Table

From 1st July, most (but not all!) visa application charges will be increasing in line with inflation. The actual legislation is quite hard to understand ("118 Subitem 1137(4E) of Schedule 1 (table item 2) Omit “$367”, substitute “$375” 😳), so we have helped you prepare a summary comparison table for the common visa subclasses. We have also listed every visa subclass where the VACs will remain the same.

Comparison table: Visa application charge changes for common visa types:

Which VACs will stay the same?

Bridging visas: All bridging visa VACs will stay the same
