Costs for Migrating to Australia 2013Biaya Migrasi ke Australia 2013

Are you planning to work in Australia? Are you planning to make the move in 2013? There have been some adjustments made to the Australian visa fees that may concern you and your future Australian visa application.

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship have released the proposed visa application charges to come into effect from 1 July 2013.

Under advised visa application charges, the first installment of visa application charges will now consist of:

  • a base application charge;
  • an added applicant charge for every additional dependent of the primary applicant (does not apply to all visa types); and
  • a sequential temporary application charge of $700.

The sequential temporary application charge of $700 will only apply to the appellant who is already in Australia and is the holder of a temporary visa that was granted in Australia. The charge will be applied when the applicant makes an application for another temporary visa after their initial visa. This $700 fee will not be applied to the initial temporary visa granted when you are in Australia.

Any applications lodged offline (a non-Internet application) will be billed a further $80. This fee will only apply to the following visas at first:

  • Five year Resident Return (subclass 155) visa;
  • Three month Resident Return (subclass 157) visa;
  • Working Holiday (subclass 417) visa;
  • Skilled (Recognised Graduate) (subclass 476) visa; and
  • Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa.

When it comes to making a visa application, there are also other costs involved not included in the application fees charged by the DIAC. Some of the costs you may incur could include some of the following:

  • Skills Assessment:
Approx. $300 AUD – $1,500 AUD
  • Medical Examination:
Approx. $300 AUD – $500 AUD
  • IELTS Test:
Approx. $330 AUD
  • Document Translations:
Approx. $30 AUD – $40 AUD per page

Another big question on your mind is probably “What is the cost of living in Australia”. To rent a four bedroom house for a family in the suburb of Waikiki, approximately 30 minutes south of the Perth CBD by train, you will be looking at paying approximately $400 per week. You will be able to purchase a second-hand family car (for example, an automatic Holden Commodore wagon) for under $10,000.

If you are a single applicant and would like to stay in Australia by yourself, the cost for renting a room (fully furnished) will cost between $130 – $220 per week depending the condition, type, facility and location of the house or apartment.  Most importantly, the closest of the place from the city, the more expensive is the cost for renting.

The living cost in terms of food will cost you between $50 – 150 per week, which depends on whether you buy the raw material and cook it at home or buy the ready-meal from the restaurant which is of course more expensive.  If you’re feeling a little bit fancy, a meal at McDonalds will cost you roughly $8.50 AUD. The restaurant meal will cost you between $15 – 30 per meal/portion.

Your utilities (water, electricity, etc.) may cost you approximately $700 AUD per quarter.

It is a wise decision to lodge your application via a migration agent. To do so with ONE derland Consulting, our professional fees range from $80 AUD to $10,000 AUD. As of July 2013, there have been no price rises in the ONE derland professional service fees.

Apakah Anda sedang mulai merealisasikan rencana tersebut di tahun 2013? Ada beberapa perubahan terkait biaya pembuatan visa ke Australia yang perlu Anda ketahui jika hendak mengajukan aplikasi visa.

Departemen Imigrasi dan Kewarganegaraan telah meluncurkan biaya pembuatan visa yang berlaku mulai 1 Juli 2013.

Menurut biaya aplikasi visa, biaya pengajuan visa pertama saat ini terdiri dari:

  • biaya aplikasi berbasis;
  • tambahan biaya untuk setiap dependen visa dari pemohon utama visa (tidak berlaku untuk semua visa); dan
  • biaya aplikasi sementara lanjutan AUD$700.

Biaya aplikasi sementara lanjutan sebesar AUD$700 hanya berlaku untuk orang yang sudah berwenang tinggal di Australia and pemegang visa sementara yang visanya dikeluarkan di Australia. Biaya tersebut berlaku ketika yang mengajukan visa membuat aplikasi lagi setelah visa pertamanya. Biaya AUD$700 ini tidak berlaku untuk visa sementara pertama ketika Anda di Australia.

Segala aplikasi yang dimasukkan secara offline (aplikasi non-internet) akan ditambah biaya sebesar AUD$80. Biaya ini hanya akan berlaku pada visa-visa pertama berikut ini:

  • Visa Resident Return 5 tahun (subclass 155);
  • Visa Resident Return 3 bulan (subclass 157);
  • Visa Working Holiday (subclass 417);
  • Visa Skilled (Lulusan yang Diakui) (subclass 476); and
  • Visa Temporary Graduate (subclass 485).

Ketika sudah sampai pada pembuatan aplikasi visa, ada biaya tambahan lain yang tidak termasuk biaya aplikasi dari pihak DIAC. Beberapa biaya yang mungkin dikenakan, mencakup hal-hal berikut:

  • Penilaian ketrampilan:
Sekitar $300 AUD – $1,500 AUD
  • Tes Kesehatan:
Sekitar $300 AUD – $500 AUD
  • Tes IELTS:
Sekitar $330 AUD
  • Penerjemahan Dokumen-dokumen:
Sekitar $30 AUD – $40 AUD per halaman

Pertanyaan besar lain yang mungkin Anda pikirkan adalah “Bagaimana biaya hidup di Australia?” Untuk menyewa sebuah rumah keluarga dengan empat kamar tidur di pinggir kota Waikiki, sekitar 30 menit selatan Perth CBD dengan kereta, Anda akan membayar sekitar AUD$400 per minggu. Anda juga bisa membeli mobil secondhand ukuran keluarga (contohnya, Holden Commodare otomatis) seharga AUD$10,000.

Jika Anda mengajukan single application dan ingin tinggal di Australia sendiri, Anda bisa menyewa sebuah kamar (lengkap dengan perabotan) dengan biaya sekitar AUD $130 – $220 per minggu tergantung kondisi rumah, tipe, fasilitas and lokasi rumah atau apartemen tersebut. Dan paling jelas, semakin jelas dengan pusat kota, maka semakin mahal biaya sewa.

Dalam hal biaya makan, Anda akan mengeluarkan biaya sekitar AUD $50 – 150 per minggu, dan ini tergantung apakah Anda membeli bahan-bahan mentah untuk memasak sendiri di rumah atau membeli makanan siap saji di restaurant yang tentunya lebih mahal. Kalau ingin sedikit lebih tinggi, Anda bisa makan di McDonalds dengan ongkos AUD $8.50. Makanan-makanan di restaurant biasanya menghabiskan sekitar AUD $15 – 30 per porsi.

Biaya prasarana seperti air, listrik, dll, biasanya sekitar AUD $700 per 3 bulan.

Sangatlah bijak untuk mengajukan aplikasi visa Anda melalui agen migrasi. Melalui ONE derland Consulting, biaya jasa professional kami berkisar dari AUD $80 sampai AUD  $10,00. Pada Juli 2013, sudah tidak ada lagi kenaikan biaya jasa professional di ONE derland.
