Visa Evidence Charge (VEC) Doubles
The Visa Evidence Charge will more than double from 1 July, increasing from $70 to $150.
The Visa Evidence Charge is the cost of having a visa label put into your passport. Visa Evidencing is generally not required these days because Immigration can verify your status electronically.
The Visa Evidence Charge is payable if a person requests a visa label affixed to their passport as evidence of visa grant. The increase reflects the Governments attitude towards a shift toward digital services. Online verification of visa is now widely used and accepted in Australia.
Though there is no announcement as yet, it is quite likely that application fees for most visa types will also rise by approximately 5% from 1 July 2014.
p.s Australia is now visa label-free. This means you do not need a visa label in your passport to travel to, enter or stay in Australia.

Increase in Partner Visa Application Charge
Starting from 1 January 2015 the Partner Visa Application Charge (VAC) is going to increase in price.
How much will a Partner or Prospective Marriage visa cost?
There has been a 50 per cent increase to most partner Visa Application Charges. We are unable to provide you with an estimate of your fees as this amount will vary based on your circumstances. Updated pricing information is available through the visa pricing estimator.
What subclasses are affected?
This change will apply to permanent Partner visa subclasses (combined 309/100 and 820/801) and the prospective marriage visa (subclass 300).
What if I have already lodged my application?
The new fee will apply to Partner visa applications lodged on, or after 1 January 2015.
This increase will not affect you if you have lodged a valid application prior to 1 January 2015.
What other options are available if I can't afford the increased VAC?
You might consider applying for a visa under the skilled stream, which generally has quicker processing times. Visit our SkillSelect area on our website to see if there is a skilled visa option for you.
Why has the cost of a partner visa been increased?
This was a decision made by the Government in order to fund whole-of-government policy priorities.
Can I receive financial assistance to pay the VAC? Can the VAC be waived?
The department does not offer any financial assistance to visa applicants. You might consider seeking assistance from family and friends or a financial institution. The VAC is a substantial cost for most couples to bear, it is a legislative requirement that the visa application charge be paid for the application to be valid. No assessment of a visa application can be made before the appropriate charges have been paid. Furthermore, there is no provision to waive, reduce, or pay a Partner or Prospective Marriage VAC in instalments.
How can I lodge a Partner visa application before 1 January 2015?
You should lodge your Partner visa application online via ImmiAccount as this service will be available over the Christmas/New Year Period. You will also have quicker confirmation that your application has been lodged and you will be able to track the progress of your application online.
*Last modified Tuesday 23 December 2014
