Changes in Australian Visa Cost

Australian Department of Home Affairs made changes in visa

various visa subclasses that are essential to know before lodging your

file to the Department of Home Affairs.

In the last year, the visa application fee of Student visa subclass 500 was $620.00, which will be increased up to $630.00.

However, for subclass 485, an increase of $30 can be seen from $1650.00 to $1680.00.


For a tourist visa onshore, the new fee will be $370.00, which would be

a small hike from the previous fee structure, which was $365.00.

Similarly, the other visa categories fee has also revised, Visa subclass

491, the fee of $4115.00 since July 2021, from $4045.
