How to pay for visa and citizenship applications

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

If you cannot apply online and your paper application is being sent to the Washington office, you must complete the credit card details in full within the application form. 

Payment for visa and citizenship applications by credit card will appear as an Australian dollar transaction paid to an Australian orgranisation.  Prior to lodging your visa application, please notify your bank of an upcoming foreign credit card transaction to the Department.  Failure to do so may result in your payment being declined.  Without payment your visa application may be deemed invalid.

Further information on fees, charges and how to pay is available on the Department’s website.
