Well, that was an interesting surprise. I logged into my internet banking just now and found a $2120 charge on my credit card.
Turns out it’s the application charge for the visa for kungfupolarbear. The Immigration department website said it was AU$1420 or US$1420. Obviously the AU$1420 is the better way to go, but apparently if the application is lodged outside the Australia they use the currency of whatever country the application is lodged in. Oops.
But on the bright side, the application only arrived at the Australian embassy in Washington yesterday, and they’ve gotten to it already!
