As you know, migrants play an integral part in growing South Australia’s economy, by boosting productivity and strengthening our skills base.

To help ensure continued improvement in the assessment of applications, Immigration SA will introduce application fees later this year for both skilled and business State nomination applications.  We believe the introduction of fees will reduce the number of non-genuine applications, including duplications which slow processing times.

Immigration SA encourages prospective migrants to submit applications before application fees are introduced. Fees will come into effect  after 15 March 2015. The actual implementation date will be confirmed as soon as possible.

The proposed fee structure is as follows:

  Application Type SA
Skilled migrants State nominated skilled – 190 permanent $200
State nominated skilled – 489 regional provisional $200
Business migrants Business 188 provisional $500
Business permanent 888/892/893 $750
Business 132 permanent $750
Business retiree 405 $500
SA Employers Employer Nominated – RCB advice by State Government agency Nil

The fees listed are GST exclusive, whether GST applies will be confirmed before fee introduction.

The introduction of fees will enable Immigration SA to continue to provide services for applicants who are looking to settle in South Australia.

No fee will be charged for local South Australian employer sponsored applications.

Immigration SA looks forward to working with you in 2015 to help contribute to South Australia’s social and economic growth.
