Hi, I am planning to apply for South Australia Skilled Migration Program (Community Worker, ANZSCO code: 411711, Visa Subclass: 489) through a local agent. Now my agent is asking me for a fees amount of AUD 700 which he is going to pay as "EOI & State sponsorship fees" on behalf of me but i couldn't find anything like that on the internet related to this term "Eoi & State sponsorship fees" or any amount matching the amount. Can you please let me know is there is any fees for "Eoi & State sponsorship fees" for South Australia under the above mentioned Skilled Occupation Category and Application Type? Would highly appreciate your quick reply (if possible with reference link :))

There is no cost for submitting an EOI. From what I found through Google, it looks like the state sponsorship fee is $200. Is the $700 including his fee for completing these on your behalf.

If it's a registered migration agent, any application fees should be deposited to their trust account which they would keep separate from their own business finances. Their retainer agreement should explain the fee breakdown.

There shouldn't be fees for the EOI but the visa will have a fee:

Extended stay pathway - from AUD335

Invited pathway - from AUD3755
