You are required to pay the scheduled application charge for the appropriate type of visa. We cannot start processing your application until the correct fee has been received, as the application is legally not valid.
The visa application charge can be paid by credit/ debit card (Visa, MasterCard, JCB International and China UnionPay) or by cash in Russian roubles only.
For applicants travelling in a group payment on a single credit card is the preferred method of payment.
If you send your visa application by post or drop your application off at the Embassy without appointment, the card holder must provide a completed and signed Credit/ Debit 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 visa application will be returned unprocessed.
Note: To pay using Visa Electron, Cirrus, Maestro or China UnionPay cards, you must make an appointment to lodge your visa application in person, and you must bring your card with you.
Application charges can also be paid at any office of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) in Australia on your behalf. In this case, you should include a copy of the payment receipt with your application.

Migration agents and tour operators submitting group applications with a single credit card payment covering all Visa Application Charges (VACs) in person, must provide details of all applications for which the credit card payment applies (ie list of applicants, visa type and fee amount for each applicant).
