The fee payable when lodging an application with the Migration and Refugee Division of the AAT, for review of all visa refusals and cancellations, except protection visas, will increase to $1,673.
The fee payable after an unfavourable review decision is made by the Migration and Refugee Division in relation to a protection visa will also be $1,673.
In cases where a 50% fee reduction is granted the reduced fee will be $836.50.
