Visa application charges (for entertainers only)

    The visa applicant might not have to pay the visa application charge if they are working in the entertainment industry in an event or events and your organisation is:
  • a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission;
  • a foreign government agency, Embassy or Consulate;
  • a State and Territory Government or Commonwealth Government agency; or
  • a government funded event or organisation that is specified by the Minister in a legislative instrument

You should advise the the visa applicant if you are eligible for a visa application charge concession and provide them with the relevant evidence to submit with their application.

If the visa applicant does not provide evidence when they submit their application, the application might not be processed.
