Fees and Application Charges

Acceptable Payment Methods


Applications for Visa and Citizenship can be lodged online through ImmiAccount. You will be able to make the payment online as you lodge the application. This will ensure that your application and payment is received by us in a timely manner.

Applications that cannot be lodged online, can be pre-paid through the 'Manage Payments' section in ImmiAccount.

To pre-pay for your application:

  • Log in to ImmiAccount. If you don't have an ImmiAccount, you will be prompted to create one

  • go to the 'Manage payments' section to make your payment

When you pre-pay for your application in ImmiAccount we will give you a receipt number. Write this number on your application before you submit.

If you cannot apply online or pre-pay via ImmiAccount and your paper application form is being sent to the London office, the Department of Home Affairs in London accepts the following payment methods:

  • Credit Card in Australian Dollars: Mastercard Credit Card, Visa Credit Card, American Express Credit Card, Diners Credit Card, JCB Credit Card. Clients that complete the payment section of the application form are charged in Australian Dollars (AUD) only. Please note that if paying by credit card in Australian Dollars you may incur banking and currency conversion fees and you accept the risk associated with any currency fluctuations.
  • Bank Cheque in Pound Sterling and made payable to the 'Australian High Commission'. Clients whose bank is outside of the UK must ensure they request a bank cheque that can be ‘cleared’ in the UK and paid into a UK bank account. London cannot accept bank cheques in euros, Australian dollars or any currency other than pound sterling.

Note: London does not accept personal cheques, or company cheques.

When the London office receives your application, we check that you have paid by an acceptable method and that you have paid the current applicable charge. If there is a problem with either, an officer will contact you. We are unable to progress your application until payment issues are addressed. To prevent undue delay, an officer will contact you by telephone or email you wherever possible.

Please Note: You must include the exact amount that you wish to pay. Failure to do so, may result in your application being invalid.
