Outage for electronic visa applications

Published 25 June 2013

For anyone that is minded to make a visa application electronically this week (with a view to avoiding the 1 July substantial price hikes), the Department’s eLodgement systems will be offline from 28 June 2013 and will ostensibly not be available again until 1 July 2013.

Prospective applicants planning to apply online for any visa, prior to the introduction of new visa pricing and policies on 1 July 2013, are encouraged to lodge and pay for their application before 9 pm (AEST) on 28 June 2013.

Where an application is not lodged before then, the new visa pricing arrangements will apply.
