Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Costs for Migrating to Australia in 2013

How Much Does It Costs for Migrating to Australia in 2013.

Are you planning to work in Australia? Are you planning to make the move in 2013? Do you know how much the costs for migrating to Australia 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 Costs for Migrating to Australia in 2013.

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.
