User pays for biometrics at all Australian Visa Application Centers

From 1 July 2014, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection is moving to a full user-pays model at all biometric Australian Visa Application Centres (AVACs). This means that service providers will charge clients a service fee for visa application lodgement and biometric collection. This is in addition to visa application charges.

Biometrics are collected at AVACs, Australian Biometrics Collection Centres (ABCCs) or at Australian Missions using a quick, discreet and non-intrusive process that captures a facial image with a digital camera and a 10-digit fingerprint scan with a digital finger scanner.

Further information can be found on the Department’s website.
