Recommended Posts

Hi could someone please tell how much it is going to cost for my wife and I to move to Australia our son is a resident we are hoping to apply this year I have searched and searched every possible web and can't find how much you pay it tells you how long you have to wait I know you have to send off one amount for both of you and then it is so much each for the last part I know about health checks police checks but trying to work out the full cost is near impossible :confused:

Many thanks

Charlie

There are visa fees on the immigration website, in particular you should note the second visa application fee as that is the big one. It is going to cost you approx $100,000 though as ball park.

I was looking this up for my in-laws a few days ago and found a website quoting approx. $48,000 per person. For the life of me now though I can't find it to post the link to you.


Instead of thinking about what you're missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.

Believe you can and you're half way there!

It takes a bit of searching to find the right fees on the immi site. However a quick summary is easy to get by sending an email to parents@border.gov.au

 

For applications lodged now the 2nd visa application charges are[TABLE]

[TR]

[TD]SECOND VAC[/TD]

[TD]Principal applicant[/TD]

[TD]Spouse/Dependent 18 years plus[/TD]

[TD]Dependent under 18 years[/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

[TD]Subclasses 143 and 864[/TD]

[TD]$43600[/TD]

[TD]$43600[/TD]

[TD]$2095[/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

[TD]Subclasses 173/884 T- P[/TD]

[TD]$29130[/TD]

[TD]$29130[/TD]

[TD]$2095[/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

[TD]Subclasses 143/864 T-P holds a 173/884[/TD]

[TD]$19420[/TD]

[TD]$19420[/TD]

[TD]NIL[/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

[TD]Subclasses 103/804[/TD]

[TD]$2065[/TD]

[TD]$2065[/TD]

[TD]$2065[/TD]

[/TR]

[/TABLE]

 

 

The above fees are in addition to the first application charge which is around $3000 and Assurance of support which is $10k(1 parent) or $14k(two parents applying at the same time) is given back to the sponsor after 10 years.

 

PS: They are currently assessing for finalization applications lodged on 11 September 2013. So a 18+ month wait after lodging your application.
