Significant increase in Australian student visa (subclass 500) application fees, effective July 1, 2024.


Australia is famous worldwide for its world-class education and the education sector is commendable in itself. The Australian Government has made significant decisions regarding immigration fees. It has more than doubled the application fees for international students and the reason given for increasing this fee is that they have taken this decision given the increasing value of education in Australia and to maintain international unity. Earlier the immigration fee was AUD 710 around 39 thousand in Indian currency, now it has been increased to AUD 1600 around 89 thousand in Indian currency and it has been implemented from 1 July 2024.

What is the main reason behind this decision?

The government has taken this decision to maintain international education integrity and to protect international students from fraud. This change has been made so that new policies and facilities will prop up the growing value of education in Australia. Australia's Home Minister says that through this change, the fraud that was happening with international students will be stopped and it will also help in introducing new courses.
