Australia PR Visa fees


Australia has designed three main points tested visa categories that offer the permanent residency pathway to the skilled and talented people from overseas. These three main visa categories are:

  • Skilled Independent Visa Subclass 189
  • Skilled Nominated Visa Subclass 190
  • Skilled Regional (Provisional) Visa Subclass 489

All the above visa categories fall under the General Skilled Migration (GSM) Program of Australia. These are point tested visa categories, which means to apply for these visas, you need to score enough points on online SkilSelect System of Australia based on age, education, work experience, language skills, etc. factors of your profile.

The first two visas above are permanent residence visas, however, the third one is the temporary visa allocated for 4 years by the Australian government, which you can later convert into PR visa by fulfilling the conditions associated with the same. Find below the visa fee applicable to GSM category visas at the moment.
