As many applicants will be aware, new pricing arrangements were introduced on 1st July 2013, where not only the main applicant was charged, but also every individual on the visa application including partners/spouses and dependents.
As from 1st September 2013, fees will increase again by around 15%. This applies to all visa types except temporary student visas and tourist visas.
We advise all of our clients who are still to send in remaining documents for lodgement, to do so as soon as possible. For many, it may still be possible to lodge applications before 1st September to avoid the effects of the fee increase. For further advice, please speak to one of our team members who is dealing with your application.
