    If you are going to try to beat the 1st July visa application price increases, and the additional applicant charges, by lodging before 1st July, please take note!


    The department’s eLodgement systems will go offline from late June 28 to early July 1 so that their IT systems can be updated before the pricing changes come into effect.
