Contributory Parent Visa (Subclass 143) costing.

The subclass 143 visa is a permanent visa that allows the parent of a settled Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident of Australia or eligible New Zealand citizen, the ability to move to Australia.

The pricing for the 143 Visa on the website states a price of either $325 or $3,695, or even $2,370 depending on various situations.

However this makes no mention of the real cost.

At the top of the page it also states:

You might be able to get this visa if you are prepared to pay higher visa application charges for faster processing.
