Temporary Graduate Visa Subclass 485 Fees & Cost
The Australia visa 485 fees for both the streams start from AUD 1,535. This amount is the visa fee for the primary applicant. If there are multiple applicants, each one of them has to pay Visa fees depending on his /her age. The Visa fee for a co-applicant below 18 years is different from that of an applicant more than 18.
We assist you in calculating the 485 visa fees and paying it as well. You can check up your liability by referring to the Visa Pricing Estimator available on the department website. This estimator requires you to provide specific information such as the tentative date of applying for the visa, the number of co-applicants below and above 18. You can pay in a different currency. By default, the currency shown in the estimator is AUD.
Every applicant has to pay this amount when applying for the visa without which the department will not assess the application. The visa estimator does not calculate the expenses needed for your health check-ups or for procuring your character certificates. You have to pay for your biometric recordings. These are additional expenses from your side. If any family member joins as a subsequent entrant, there is no fee concession. The member should pay the full Visa application fee. Hence, the cost of 485 Visa Australia is always more than the 485 Visa fee.
