Hi Mish and everyone else who applied for the PMV,

if they haven't made a mistake on their website, the people who applied for the PMV first and need to apply for the partner 820 afterwards won't be affected by the price increase. In the list it says after 1 January 2015 the price is still $1,145 (Partner (Subclass 820/801) visa application by Prospective Marriage (Subclass 300) visa holder).

Check out the website: fees and charges partner visa on the Department of Immigration website.

Thanks for that .

I was going off the media article that said all will rise 50% and the fact that last time they increased them PMV to 820 went up.

Atleast there is some good news in all of this

the government are money grabbing criminals, everyone in immigration are heartless bastards. 16 months waiting for PMV now and no end in sight. now they want people to pay more but they let in thousands of dodgy students and workers. what a joke. the partner people are the most genuine and reliable who do the least rorting.

How true Travellor, the general population seem to be far from sympathetic to the plight of most visa seekers.
I am sure they wouldn't care if the price of a visa increased tenfold,

I think everyone would agree on your first point, but I would take you to task on the second. Why bring emotions into the equation when they play no part in the decision making process. If your application was complete in all manner when you submitted it, and your waiting time has exceed the published time frame you have every right to complain to the embassy and even accuse the staff of incompetence, but to say the whole department is heartless is clearly something you can't prove.

i'll rephrase. Everyone overseas who I have dealt with are heartless bastards. Sure I can complain and do whatever I want, but they could not care less.
