Diversitat has been an Approved Proposing Organisation (APO) since the inception of the Community Support Program (CSP). In the 2018/2019 program year we lodged over 50 CSP applications, had 10 families granted their visa, of which four already call Australia home.

What are the costs?

Diversitat collects the costs at five different stages throughout the process.  The costs consist of:

  • Administration fees – payable to Diversitat;
  • Visa Application Charges – payable to the Department of Home Affairs;
  • Humanitarian Settlement Program fees – payable to Diversitat;
  • Assurance of Support (AOS)’ – an agreement between an Assurer and the Department of Human Services, that they will cover the cost of any recoverable benefits paid by Centrelink to the visa applicants. An Assurer can only assure a maximum of 2 adults, and is subject to an income test;
  • Medical checks – payable to the health service provider in the applicant’s country of residence;
  • Airfares – payable to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) or airline of choice;
  • Miscellaneous costs dependent on country of residence (e.g. cost to courier Immicards, exit fees, or cost of pre-departure accommodation if required);
  • Costs associated with accommodation and settlement in Australia, until such time these can be covered by the visa applicants.

Fees and associated costs paid to Diversitat and the Department of Home Affairs up to the time of visa application decision will not be refunded if the application is refused.;
