There are many different types of visas and costs vary considerably.
There are various visa application fees and charges payable to the government, and these can vary depending on the visa type and whether you are applying from inside Australia or from overseas.
Almost all applicants are required to undertake an extensive medical examination for which the assessing doctor makes a charge.
Where applicants are required to undertake a skills assessment, primarily those applying for Skilled or Employer Sponsored Migration, the assessing authority makes a charge.
Other costs that may be incurred can include: the obtaining of character clearances from authorities in countries where you have lived for 12 months or more in the past 10 years; the translation of any documents that are not in English; and having certified true copies made of your original documents.
Our professional fees vary depending upon the complexity of the visa type. For example, Business Migration Visas being quite complex, are considerably more expensive, both in government charges and in our preparation fees. Accordingly, we quote individually on all visa requirements.
