My partner living in Vietnam. How much I need to spend to bring her Australia and What is the process. Do I need to hire a visa adviser or I can do it myself?

For a single applicant the Do It Yourself budget, including the visa application charge, ancillary and travel costs about $10000.

You do not have to retain the services of an 'adviser' to apply for any Australian visa, but if you do make sure you consult a registered migration agent.

I strongly advise prospective applicants to consult a registered migration agent for an assessment before embarking on a course of action.

It seems, AU Visa fee is too high!!! I came here with Student visa and now working in a shop beside regular study my cost was too low when I came here.

There have any risk for the money if I fail to get visa after application.

The main part of the cost ($7,715) is to have your application looked at. There are no refunds if it is refused.
Other parts of the cost include medicals, again, no refunds.

The cost has risen substantially in recent years, possibly to try to cut down the number of applicants. In 2011 it was $1,735.

Some people applied for a partner visa just to get international student fees down.

I can concur with this.
Costs all up to bring my wife over from Vietnam was about 10k after visa, checks, flights etc... you'll need to cater in living expenses too as most likely your partner won't have a job in the early months...

Add $3000 to $4000 for an agent, if you go down that path (I strongly suggest that you do).

There will also be police check expenses and medical examination expenses.

Total could easily be around $15k, to be safe.

Would anyone know what the cost would be all up of partner visa if your both living here ?
l'm Australian she's Portuguese and been here nearly 5 yrs.
She was married and applied 4yrs ago but he got violent and they split.
So her visas been on hold since, and now we've met.
lf it is denied , we'd have to go for a brand new partner visa for her to stay .
l know the fee itself , but what else is on top of that ?

Wish we were loaded l'd just dump the lot on an agencies desk but we couldn't afford that on top..

The variables are too great to say, but the $10,000 for a single is a good ball park.

The DV claim will be a PR visa, then no cost will apply.

DV claims for PR I think are high, but never found the statistics - nor looked hard.
