How to pay the fee
You need to pay a fee when you apply. The fee for 2021-22 is $74.90 and changes on 1 July each year. If you apply online, you can pay using a credit card. If you email or post your application, we will contact you about payment. We cannot process your application until you pay the fee.
You may not have to pay a fee if this would cause serious financial hardship. Apply for a waiver using Form F80.
What happens next
After we receive your application, we:
