Are Partner Visa Costs in Australia fair?
Cost of Partner Visa in Australia tests the best of relationships
The cost of Partner Visas in Australia has rapidly increased over the last 10 years.
From just a few thousand dollars to almost $8000 is a huge increase in such a short space of time. In fact, Partner Visa fees in Australia are amongst the highest in the world. However, this has not decreased the demand to apply for Partner visas as it provides a pathway to permanent residency in Australia (ohh you can also be with your partner, which is nice :)).
It is not just the Partner Visa fees ....
The Partner Visa costs payable can be even higher if you have children with fees of $3,860 for over 18’s and $1,935 for under 18s payable. This is just the start, further fees can include the cost of Migration Agent fees ($3000 to $6000), health checks ($300+), police checks ($50-$150), airfares, relocation costs. The overall Partner Visa costs in Australia can easily balloon to in excess of $20,000 AUD.
