Payment of Visa Application Charges and Fees in Foreign Currencies

The Australian Government released an instrument that arranges foreign currencies. According to the instrument, visa applicants who would finalise the visa fee must follow the specified currency from 01 July 2021. Furthermore, it is stated on the instrument that the amount of the payment is to be worked out as follows:

a) If a certain currency is specified in the instrument, the visa application charge should be finalised according to the exchange rate for the currency specified in the instrument;

b) If a certain currency is not specified in the instrument, the visa application charge should be finalised according to the formula in sub-regulation 5.36(2). The formula is:

AUD x CER x 1.05

AUD means the amount of the fee in Australian dollars.

CER means the highest exchange rate that is lawfully obtainable on a commercial basis for the purchase in the foreign country of Australian currency with the currency of the foreign country in a period that:

  • Begins:
    • On the day when this regulation commences; or
    • On any subsequent day when that rate increases or decreases by at least 5%, and
  • Ends at the end of each day before another period begins.
