Credit card is the preferred payment option.
Payments using credit card will be processed in Australian dollars (AUD). We accept MasterCard, Visa, AMEX, Diners and JCB. When paying by a credit card you may incur a credit card surcharge, banking and currency conversion fees and you will need to accept the risk associated with any currency fluctuations.
Prior to lodging your application, you may need to notify your bank of an upcoming foreign credit card transaction. Failure to do so may result in your transaction being declined. Without payment your application is invalid.
Credit card transactions processed in Australian dollars (AUD) are processed in Australia. A
credit card surcharge may apply to transactions made using your credit card.
For credit card payments use the
Payment Details Form - 1440.
If you are paying by money order or international bank draft, you must make it payable to 'Australian High Commission' and payment must be in Canadian dollars.
