VisAustralia fees are based on our knowledge, qualifications and the professional time required to prepare your application.
There are a range of external factors that impact on the time it takes to complete the work, including different accreditation processes for different occupations, the number of applicants included in an application, and different requirements for supporting documentation.
The variety of visa classes and personal circumstances mean we do not do the same work on each application and cannot charge the same fee for each application. Given VisAustralia’s premium fixed fee application service includes engaging in the totality of work needed to prepare a successful visa application we cannot provide a full quote until we have understood the issues in your application.
VisAustralia offers an independent Legal Assessment for people wishing to migrate to Australia. The purpose of the Assessment is to develop a strategic solution that best suits your intentions.
The Assessment costs AUD $ 275 payable by credit card through the secure payment system in the VisAustralia Client Centre.
Before starting work on your application we are required under the Migration Agent's Code of Conduct to enter a written agreement with you. The agreement sets out what we agree to do for you and the total cost of your application.
To provide you with certainty we will in most cases give you a fixed price quote after the Legal Assessment. This gives you certainty about the final amount you will pay for the visa process and allows you to plan your finances accordingly.
Migration agents who claim to provide a fixed fee service in advance of assessing your case may be providing you with misleading information.
As part of our quote we will provide you with a payment plan that spreads the total costs of the application across a period of about 9 months. External fees are also staggered in that for example, you cannot apply for the visa and pay the visa application charge until the preliminary steps have been completed.
The total fee is paid in 4 separate payments over the 9 months that it takes for your application to progress. In the case that your application cannot move past a certain point no further fees are paid.
We believe this success base fee arrangement is both fair to you and fairly reflects our work in advancing your application.
To give you a better idea of how much the total cost may be, we can give you an indication of our fee structure. Note that our premium fixed price service will not be the sum of the components as each application is different and our quote will be tailored to your circumstances.
