Cost of visas?

My family and I hope to get over on a sponsorship visa 457 via a recruitment agency which will cost roughly AU$3,500 for the visa then after 3 months apply for permanency, which I am told will cost roughly another AU$5,500. Does anyone know if this figure sounds about right? I apologise in advance for my ignorance.

I'd be a bit wary of a recruitment agency offering a 457 and then PR within a few months.
Do some research yourself via Department of Immigration & Citizenship and you will see that a 457 visa fee is only several hundred $$$ and there are eligibility requirements to move from a 457 to PR, not first needing an employer.
There have been quite a few suspect operations involving overseas recruiters and all may not be as it is being told to you.
