Migration (Class of persons for Visitor (Class FA) visa nil VAC) Repeal (LIN 23/069) Instrument 2023

  Subitem 1236(2) of Schedule 1 to the Migration Regulations sets out the amount of the visa application charge (VAC) payable by an applicant for a Visitor (Class FA) visa. Under subparagraph 1236(2)(a)(iv) of Schedule 1 to the Migration Regulations, in relation to an application for a Subclass 600 (Visitor) visa that is not in the Frequent Traveller stream, the Minister may, in an instrument in writing, specify a class of persons for whom the first instalment of the VAC is nil. There is no second instalment for an application for a Visitor (Class FA) visa.

LIN 21/021 specifies that certain former Subclass 600 (Visitor) visa holders could apply for a new Subclass 600 visa with a nil VAC, where their travel to Australia was affected by the
COVID-19 Pandemic. The specified period within which Subclass 600 (Visitor) visa applicants could make a valid application without paying a VAC ended on 31 December 2022.

 The purpose of LIN 23/069 is to repeal LIN 21/021, as the instrument is spent, and no longer required.
