ALL VISA FEES (Except Tourist, Student) Increasing 15% 1 Sept. 2013

As of 1 September 2013, visa fees are going up 15% for all visas EXCEPT tourist and student visas. This has not been posted prominently on DIAC's website yet, but when it is we'll post a link here.

This was confirmed by MARA-registered migration agent and forum regular Mark Northam as well.
