Visa pricing table - 2 June 2014 to 31 December 2014

  • Visa and MasterCard - 1.08%
  • American Express and JCB - 1.99%
  • Diners Club International - 2.91%

The cost of visas 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.

The visa application charge is the amount of money in Australian dollars (AUD) that must be paid for a visa application. In some cases the visa application charge is nil.
