Ok, so I know i'm a while off this part yet, but i was looking at the cost for the 176 visa on the DIAC website and it confused me.
There are two installements to pay, but in the information about the second installment it seems to point to dependants which I don't understand.
"The 2nd instalment of the Visa Application Charge for dependents aged 18 years or over with less than functional English must be paid before the visa is granted."
Does this mean you only pay the second installement if you have dependants? And what is a dependant, I assumed it was children, but i'd best check it doesn't mean partners as well?!
the mind boggles!
