Paypal for visa fees is coming


The Immigration Department will be offering PayPal as a new payment option for applications lodged through ImmiAccount.

This payment method will increase the options available to applicants as PayPal accounts can be linked to bank accounts, credit cards or debit cards. PayPal has the advantage of accepting credit card types not currently accepted through departmental systems such as UnionPay and Discovery Card.

Further improvement will also be made to the BPAY options available to visa applicants. The option to make a BPAY payment will be extended to securities and second instalment visa application changes (VAC2). BPAY is an alternate payment pathway that does not incur a credit card surcharge and is not restricted as an online only payment channel.
