Group applications

If you apply online you can submit a group of applications together. You will only need to make one payment for all of the applications, and we will receive and process the applications together.

To submit a group of applications together there are two steps:

Create the individual applications that you want to submit as part of the group

Create a group application to submit the applications

Creating individual applications to form part of the group

    1. Create a new visa application (student, work, or visitor)

    2. On the ‘Identity and Contact’ screen select ‘Yes’ to the question “Will this visa application be submitted together with other visa applications as part of a group?”

    3. You may choose to indicate the name of the group the application belongs to. If you are working on several different groups at once including a group name could make it easier for you to ensure you submit the application with the correct group later. Indicating a group name is optional.
    4. Complete the application by answering all mandatory questions, uploading all the required documents, and completing the declaration.
    5. On the payment screen, press the ‘Submit’ button. Your application will be saved with a status of ‘Ready for Group’. No payment will be taken at this stage, and you can still edit this application if needed.

  3. Select applications to add to the group. You can only add applications with the status of ‘Ready for Group’. If the group is of visitors, you can only select visitor visa applications to add. For example, if you indicated the group is of Approved Destination Status (ADS) visitors, you can't select work or student applications to add to the group.

  4. Upload documents relevant to the group as a whole. This might include a cover letter, or a travel itinerary.

  5. Confirm the amount owing and how you will pay (Visa or MasterCard, or UnionPay). You will then be taken to the payment screen to complete the payment and submit the group of applications.

    Note: The total of all the fees and levies for the applications included in the group will appear on the payment screen. The invoice you receive will itemise the fees and levies for each application individually.
