Migration agent fees while not set, are expected to be reasonable. What is reasonable will depend on factors, such as:
- the complexity of the application
- the level of service required by a client
- the going market rate
The Office of the MARA collects average fee data from registered migration agents each year and then publishes this information in a table format on their website.
To provide an example, during the period September 2009 to August 2010, 70% of Registered Migration Agents charged between AUD $1,500 and $3,500 for a partner visa application. These fees are in Australian dollars and include GST
