Over the past few years each July the Australian authorities have increased the cost of their visas for men and women that would like to emigrate but when we compare the various visa options and the price of every visa against the advantages it provides we're certain the cost of an Australian spouse visa is currently out of control.
Australian Partner Visas
An Australian who falls in love with an overseas national and who wishes to bring that individual back home will have to have deep pockets. The notion that love is free appears to have been lost to the Australian authorities in the past few years. The current cost of an Australian spouse visa is in excess of $6,500.
Australian Skilled Visas
A person on the shortage occupation list may procure a permanent visa to live and work in Australia without additional restrictions post arrival for as little as $3,600 which may appear a terrific deal however the benefits are apparent. The individual can settle into Australia quite quickly once they've been accepted.
Australian Contributory Parent Visas
This visa class enables a man to invite their parent to live together in Australia and even though there are numerous criteria one must meet so as to ensure the visa the purchase price of the actual visa is $2,490 not including any gifts that possibly required. Again this is a good deal lower than a spouse visa.
Working Holiday Visas
While this visa doesn't lead to residency and is restricted in what the holder may do it's still a common way for young people to enter Australia, who then often go on to a 457 visa or alternative routes to stay.
