Compared to the previous government of liars

But that's for another topic.

I view the current govt as the lesser of 2 evils.

Thumbs down

Yikes! I thought it was already quite expensive. With medicals it will be more than 7000... I had a look to compare - for my partner to get his residency in my country of origin the fee is about $300...

Imagine when the applicant has children that will migrate. It is just insane.

I know a few people that were waiting until Feb to apply. Now they are going to submit and upload gradually.

While I could understand a fee increase, 50% is nothing but a cash grab designed to hit people who have no option but to pay if they wish to live in Australia with thier partners.

Well I'm sure with the increased fee that they will also start giving out correct information (more often), updating their web site, start replying to e-mails - yeah righto!

We are planning to submit it in March 2015.
This is so heartbreaking

Wow. When I applied back in April they'd just had the last bump and we were bummed, but this... 3k+ is a blow, but doable. Almost 7k seems incredibly difficult for most people. I feel so bad for new applicants. :/

I hope some people are at least aware of the update and able to submit ahead of it. Not much time to do that, though.
