The estimation of the total cost for immigrating to Australia depends upon many factors.

Depending on which body is assessing your credentials, a fee is decided upon. The cost is generally ranges from 500 $ to 800 $.

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.
