Base application charge
Every visa application has a base application charge, but in some cases this is nil. If your application includes more than one applicant, known as a combined application, then the base application charge will only be paid by the main applicant.
Exemptions for the base application charge
If the base application charge for the application is nil, then all other components of the first instalment are also nil. You and any additional applicants are not required to pay the additional applicant charge, the non-Internet application charge or the subsequent temporary application charge. You might not need to pay the visa application charge under specific circumstances for specific visa subclasses. For information on what you will need to pay, use the Visa pricing estimator.
