I was just coming to post about this. Here is the link to the news article: http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2...s-foreign-love

It also means anyone who has been approved for their PMV or has a PMV in progress will have to pay the increase when they lodge their 820.

IndyMama my estimate for a PMV to 820 would be $1,717.50 + credit card surcharge.

Great - so not for cost recovery, just revenue raising

Those that are on Centrelink are pretty much screwed no way they will be able to afford them now.

There might be a few rushed weddings within the next couple of weeks to beat the fee increase for PMV to 820.

Hubby & I had been thinking of holding off until Feb to submit his application (so we could deal with christmas first) but that is definitely changed now - thankfully it's just about ready to go, was only going to wait so that we had extra cash over the festive period...but not worth a 50% price increase that's for sure.
