A fee will be charged for this service in addition to the scheduled fee charged by the Australian Government for all visa applications.

Visa applications and citizenship by descent applications will continue to be assessed and decided by the Australian Embassy in Yangon (or in some cases, Bangkok). Staff at the AVAC have no involvement in the decision making process, or knowledge of the application outcome.

The AVAC is the location at which applications are submitted and collected after a decision is made by the Australian Embassy.
