Some important points to remember when applying for you Australian Fiance Visa.
Nearly all Australian visas require the payment of a visa application charge. It is very important to note that if the wrong visa application charge is paid, or not paid at all, then the visa application will be invalid, that is, it won’t even be considered by the decision-maker. This can cause considerable inconvenience and delay a travelers travel plans to Australia.
Australia’s migration regulations provide for the various visa application charges which are also published on the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) website.
Australian Fiance Visa Advice
With over 150 different types of Australian visa, it is vitally important that you pay the correct visa application charge as of the date of visa application, and note too that the visa application charge is not listed on the relevant visa application form as they change annually, and depending upon the country where you lodge your application you will have to pay in the manner the Australian Embassy responsible for that country provides.
Prior to lodging any Australia visa application always check the current visa application charge for the visa you are applying for and the manner in which payment can be made. Failure to do so may result in you submitting an invalid visa application.
Fiance Visa processing times
Another important tip, is that some overseas post of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) have different processing times, depending upon the visa being applied for. These should only be used a rough guide as processing times can vary significantly during peak holiday period or where the particular overseas post has a significant amount of applications to deal with.
If you are intending to apply for an Australian tourist visa or a sponsored family visitor visa, then don’t leave it to the last minute. Permanent visas, such as partner visas and fiancé visas can take several months to process after the application has been lodged.
