I think this is the first time I have ever been disappointed to be right. Dang! Glad we warned people here. That's one way for Immi to avoid a huge influx of applications before a price increase -just don't tell anyone in advance!

Dang... onshore partner visa is now $4575 for just the one applicant (no dependents).

To answer ABC_boy's question: The PMV-to-820 application charge is now $1145 (applicant only, no dependents).

For all new fees: Visa Pricing Table

Click "Live," then scroll down to "Partner Migration."

that's really sneaky and underhand on their part!!! I unfortunately will have to take the $600 hit as even though we now have the certificate of registration,I also want to have close to a year of cohabitation just to make absolutely sure they can't reject us on a technicality,plus I need time to arrange all our stat decs (all the other paperwork stuff is organised and sorted) I feel sorry for the people not using Migration agents who may not be on forums where this information was available. While I'm not happy about it,thankfully $600 is not the problem for us that I can imagine it may be for others. I have a feeling DIAC are going to be hearing from a lot of unhappy people. I am also making sure this application is ready to go before the end of the year as I'm sure they'll have a Jan 2014 increase as well....tossers

I've already applied for my visa but it still makes me mad that they keep putting the prices up like this!

I could understand the prices going UP if the processing times were going DOWN, but really what is the likelihood of that happening?

The Australian Government advertises people to come to this country and makes out its Utopia, then they charge simple hard working people a bloody fortune to get here, do they think that the rest of the world are earning a bloody fortune in wages? It annoys me so much to think that these people are making it impossible for genuine folk to arrive here. These increases are ridiculous and way above what the average joe blogs earns, i came from Malta and our wage was only 800 euros a month and thats a bloody good wage. Some poor nations dont earn that in a year. Jeez in years to come the waiting time for a visa will be within weeks because only the rich will be able to afford it. Maybe thats there intention they want quality not quantity.
