That's still less than virgin!

I know JetStar does offer a pay by bank option though, it just means you have to have the funds up front, can't put it on the plastic

Oh the Virgin flight I booked was international and it was $60 - I believe that was each ticket. Domestic must be less

update guys! Ok so after ringing them on Tuesday - being told to email, our BVB got approved today! whoop whoop! stress is officially gone!!! so apparently they didnt lose it they just forgot about it or something haha. Anyway i would recommend if anyone has been waiting a little to just email the partner processing email and hopefully that will kick them into action.

BTW we also got a 6 month multiple entry!

I don think you can pay on the spot! I took my paper application into DIBP this morning to try and avoid the credit card surcharge and they basically made me write a declaration saying i authorise them to take the (still unknown) surcharge from my credit card and will just sit on it till they can add the admin fee!!!!!!!

How rude! So the charges have not taken effect yet, so they'll hold your application till they do? Ridiculous!

Yep...was first in the door at 9am and the guy on the counter basically said he would get it to the right department and I needed to authorise them to take the mystery payment.,.which comes into effect tomorrow, checked online banking. No money taken today. Such a joke

Yeah I had the same problem too but I wrote $140 on my application paper. They wouldn't accept debit card. So I had to use normal visa debit card. They haven't taken my money out yet.
