Once your visa is approved, you’ll receive a visa grant notification letter by email that explains the conditions of your visa, including the period of validity and entry requirements. You should keep a digital copy on your mobile device and print it out as well before your trip to Australia.

Australia Visitor Visa costs and processing times

When you apply for the Australia Visitor Visa using our service, we offer three different processing speeds to match your travel schedule:

  • Standard Processing: This is our most affordable option. It’s ideal for travelers who are organizing their visas well ahead of their planned departure.

  • Rush Processing: Aimed at travelers who need their visa sooner than the Standard Processing timeframe allows due to a closer travel date.

  • Super Rush Processing: This option is for travelers who require their visas urgently and are prepared to pay extra for the fastest processing time.

Each processing option has its own separate fee, which does not include the government visa charge. This government visa fee starts from AUD190 (roughly USD $126.67).

Both fees can be paid online when you submit your application through our platform.
