Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations amend the Immigration Regulations 1999 to—

  • require, from 28 June 2004, applicants for temporary or limited purpose visas or permits to submit all information and documents required to assess their application at the time the application is lodged:

  • increase, with effect on 1 July 2004, the migrant levy to $300 per person (up to a maximum $1,200 for all persons included in a single application or associated applications) in all categories except the Pacific access category, where the levy is increased to $150 per person (with a maximum of $600 for all persons included in a single application or associated applications). The existing exemptions from the levy (for Samoan citizens or refugee-associated persons who would otherwise ordinarily be required to pay the levy) remain.
