Primary Service Fee

 A Primary Service Fee is charged for the submission of a visa application, whether the application is sent to us via mail or courier or submitted in-person at one of our Visa Application Centres (VACs) or pop-up VACs.

Secondary Service Fee

Visa applications that involve both primary and secondary clients listed on a single application form attract a Secondary Service Fee. This is in addition to the Primary Service Fee and applies to each secondary applicant included in the form.

 For clients who only require services associated with the Citizenship by Decent application process and any additional document drops (not including requests made by the Australian Visa Office and beyond the one free drop included in the first Service Fee charged), the Secondary Service Fee is charged.


Biometric Fee

Clients submitting their biometric information at one of our VACs (facial image and 10-digit fingerprint scan), are charged a Biometric Fee. This Biometric Fee is in addition to the applicable Primary/Secondary Service Fee.

 Please note: TTS currently only collects biometrics on behalf of the Australian Government in the South Pacific region, from visa applicants who are in Fiji, New Zealand, Tonga and Samoa
