sorry to hear that Enghaus . Yes, the evil regulatiions brought in by the "witch" , Theresa May from November 2010 are just obstacles designed to reduce net immigration for Tory re-electiion purposes and none EU family immigration is an easy target . These tory politicians are really the pits and have not an ounce of compassion or empathy in their souls - sad situation .

just got this email from an agent who kibndly replied to my message .

Hi Barry - 100% grossly unfair as no other visa category was increased. As for the total, it will be $1717.50 .. A bit worse I'm afraid to say

Regards

Hi IndyMama,

I really hope so too. The visa charges are high enough already.

See this is what I originally thought because they said 50% increase to ALL partner visa's but immigration website has had a price change for PMV to 820. You wouldn't think they would forget to update it.

Time will tell anyway. I am awaiting the first PMV to 820 to find out what it is.

When do you lodge yours?

morning Mish,
Interesting and maybe that agent was wrong. I think I saw what you saw a few days ago but I think they just did not list the 820/801 which follows PM visa . Unfortunately, we will not marry until late January if i get get the silly celebrant to answer my emails .
I wish you and your partner and all on this thread the compliments of the seasoin and sad to see this government following the anti family reunion policy of the Uk Tory party and trying to make it very expensive for an aussie to marry and live in his or her own country with a none aussie partner . I feel sorry for younger visa applicants not old enough to have accumulated savings like an "oldie" such as me as really tough for them.

Hey Barry - there are two types of 820/801 application. They're the same form, the same process, etc., but if you're applying from a PMV, you tick a box that asks if you are applying from a PMV. Then you get charged less than you would if you were NOT applying from a PMV. Currently it's $1145. DIBP's website lists that type of visa as being the same price after January 1. I don't think they'd just forget to update it (though stranger things have happened), so my guess would be that it is NOT going to be increased. We'll see, though. It wouldn't be the first time DIBP had omitted something important from their website.

(Fees and charges are here for anyone who wants to see them: Fees and charges for visas)

Look under Live --> Partner Migration and then scroll down to where it says "Note:" and talks about the fee increase starting Jan. 1.

hi College Girl,
thanks so much for your input on this and intertesting that you think I and others might escape this hefty 50% increase . Will not break the bank in my case but really sad for those young people and especially for those just starting the process .
thanks again and a happy xmas to you and your family .

You're in the right place, Barry, but you're looking at the wrong visa type. That type of visa, if you read it, says it is for FORMER Prospective Marriage Visa holders. In your situation you are a CURRENT Prospective Marriage Visa holder (the category directly above it). That still is listed as $1145, same as always.
