Application Charges

You are required to pay the scheduled application charge for the appropriate type of visa or citizenship application. We cannot start processing your application until the correct fee has been received, as the application is legally not valid.

Payment Methods

The visa/citizenship application charge can be paid by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners, JCB International) in Australian dollars or by cash in Russian roubles only.

Note: If paying by credit card in Australian Dollars you may incur banking and currency conversion fees and you accept the risk associated with any currency fluctuations.

For applicants travelling in a group payment on a single credit card is the preferred method of payment.

If you send your application by post or drop your application off at the Embassy without appointment, the card holder must provide a completed and signed Credit Card Authorisation Form with the application. If the correct form is not provided or we are unable to deduct the charge from the credit card, the application will be returned unprocessed.

See: Credit Card Authorisation Form 

Application charges can also be paid at any office of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) in Australia on your behalf. In this case, you should include a copy of the payment receipt with your application.
