Australia Immigration- An economical choice!

While planning to permanently move overseas, one question that often perturbs a person is the amount of fund required for the process. The good news is- it is really affordable to move to a promising country like Australia!

Australia is one golden country with potential options for everyone- be it engaging in your own business or be employed with a top-notch company. The standard of living it offers is beyond one’s hopes. To cut it short, Australia is an excellent country where you can well-settle with your family at an ‘easy on the pocket’ cost.

The estimation of the total cost for immigrating to Australia depends upon many factors. To name a few such as the kind of visa you applied for, visa application fees, medical examination fees, airfares to Australia, English language test fees, health insurance fees, how many members are accompanying, place of accommodation, and other miscellaneous factors. However, a general consensus states the following costs which are fixed to be borne by you:

  • Assessment fee: 500 $-800 $ (varies with the assessment body)

Assessment free is the fee you pay to your assessment body for accessing your qualification and skill set. Australia has many assessing bodies for different professions. For instance, AACA (Architect Accreditation Council of Australia) which assesses Architects, ACS (Australia Computer Society) for Computer Related professions, ADC (Australian Dental Council) which assesses Dentists and like-ways there are other bodies. Depending on which body is assessing your credentials, a fee is decided upon. The cost is generally ranges from 500 $ to 800 $.

  • IELTS test fee: 12000 INR

IELTS stands for International English Language Testing Standards. It is an English proficiency test which a candidate needs to appear for in order to prove his/her ability to speak, write, listen and read Australia’s native language English. A standard fee of INR 12,000 is charged for a single attempt of IELTS examination. The exam consist of 4 modules namely Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. To get through the test, make sure you get IELTS exam assistance kit from Talent Connected Worldwide. Our professionally designed study material is in accordance with the latest course outline. 

  • Permanent Residence fee (called PR fee)- Primary Applicant: $3600, Secondary Applicant: $1800 & Child Applicant: $900

Permanent Resident Fee is the fee you pay to Government of Australia as basic payment for visa application processing. The primary applicant needs to pay $3600. If he/she is accompanying anyone as a secondary applicant, then an extra fee of $1800 is to be paid. Similarly, if any child is accompanying you, an extra fee amounting to $900 per child is to be paid. This fee is mandatory to be paid and is non-refundable in case your visa application is rejected.

  • Visa label fee: $70

Visa label fee is to be paid by an applicant if he/she is currently having an Australia Visa. It is Australian government policy to charge for visa labels. Visa label fee is fixed at $70. The fee is also sometimes termed as Visa Evidence Charge.  

  • Medical fee: 5000 - 9000 INR

To be fully eligible to enter Australia as a Permanent Resident, an applicant mandatorily need to undergo a medical examination. This examination is necessary as the government has to be certain that the population of Australia is in utmost safety from any communicable virus that the immigrant may be bringing in. Therefore, a person has to be healthy and must not be carrying any communicable disease such as Tuberculosis, Hepatitis, etc. A series of medical tests costs you around 5000-9000 INR.

  • Miscellaneous expenditure:

 Apart from the above mentioned expenses, there are certain payments that are situational and you may need to incur them. For instance, State nomination fee. Other charges includes Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) cost, Spouse’s IELTS (if he/she is willing to give IELTS exam), etc.

  • Fund Management:

This is not a physical cost to be paid as fee. Fund management is maintenance of fund to be showcased by the applicant if any Australian state government demands. The funds may become necessary to showcase in cases where the government needs to be assured that you can sustain yourself and accompanying family members after immigrating to Australia. This is not a mandatory requirement at all. In case of Visa sub-class 189, you need not show any amount of funds.

Our Client Review
Immigrating to Canada as a student, I was convinced that I wanted to live my life here. I had the right grades and all other skills. But finding a job as an Indian in Canada is not always easy. Thankfully, I had Talent Connected Worldwide help me. They were the Canada immigration consultancy I had taken help from when moving to Canada as a student. After my studies, I asked them again for help. They helped me get placed with a leading bank in Canada as they are a leading IT consultancy here.

My heartfelt thanks goes out to Rachal Sidhu and her team of expert Canada immigration consultants. Since she is a Canada immigration lawyer, I could close my eyes and trust her and her team to help me get both my student visa and also my Canada PR visa. Everyone wants to immigrate overseas and if Canada is your dream country, then Talent Connected Worldwide is the consultancy to go for.
