Paying the WHV application fee

Paying and submitting the WHV application

The WHV application costs AUD450, which is around CAD435 or EUR285. Note that the fee is non-refundable, even if your WHV is denied. But don’t worry, 99% of applications are successful.

Additional fees apply depending on your payment method:

  • Visa and MasterCard: + 1.32%
  • American Express and JCB: + 1.40%
  • PayPal: + 1%
  • Diners Club International: + 1.99%
  • Union Pay: + 1,90%

Enter your payment information and click “Submit.”

Now, breathe—you’re done!

The “Acknowledgement of Application Received”

A few minutes after submitting your application, you should receive a “no reply” email with an attachment—’Immi Acknowledgement of Application Received.PDF.”

The attached PDF contains several important reference numbers:

  • Your transaction reference number (that’s the number you saw at the top of the page throughout the online application process)
  • Your application ID
  • Your file number
  • Your Visa Application Charge Receipt Number.

Download the PDF and keep the email, you may need this info later on.
