Important Changes to Visa Application Charges from 1 July 2013

From 1 July 2013, new visa pricing arrangements will be introduced, changing visa application charges from a single charge at the time of application to a charge per applicant in an individual or combined application.

The visa application charge is the amount of money in Australian Dollars (AUD) that must be paid for a visa application, unless there is an exemption. The visa application charge might be broken into instalments, with one part payable at the time of application, and another before grant.

Depending on your circumstances, there will be different types of charges included in the total visa application charge amount that is payable at the time of lodging a visa application. Please refer to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website for further information on these new arrangements by clicking here.

Visa Application Charges

Payment must be included for your application to be valid.

Payment using credit cards are processed in Australian Dollars (AUD) - only Master card, Visa, AMEX, Diners and JCB accepted.

Note: When paying by credit card in Australian Dollars you may incur banking and currency conversion fees and you must accept the risk associated with any currency fluctuations.

Please ensure with your bank that your daily credit limit and funds are sufficient to cover the visa application charge.

If you do not have a credit card, you may arrange for another person to pay by credit card on your behalf. Please ensure the credit card holder signs the authorisation form.
See: Credit Card Authorisation Form (PDF)

The processing charge cannot be refunded, irrespective of the outcome of the application.

Your application will be returned if:
• you do not include payment details,
• we are unable to deduct the fee from your credit card
• you authorise us to deduct a fee which is insufficient.

 

Visas and Immigration

Welcome to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) Belgrade website. For information on visas for Australia and Australian citizenship, visit the main website of the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Australia’s modern electronic visa system does not require you to have a visa label placed in your passport to confirm your immigration status and entitlements in Australia.

When you check-in to fly to Australia, airline staff will use your passport to electronically confirm that you have authority to travel to Australia prior to boarding the aircraft. See: About Your Visa http://www.immi.gov.au/visas/about-your-visa.htm
