Default Can I pay immigration fee via my friends credit card?

Hi,

I'm thinking to pay partner visa fee via my friend's credit card. Is it allowed by DIBP? Will DIBP accept this payment or there will be any impact on partner visa processing?

Thanks,
Lilly.

Partner visas can now only be applied for online so you'll need to pay by card, PayPal or BPAY.

DIBP are not a restaurant, so splitting payments won't be an option. So you'll need to arrange to use a single card or payment service.

Regards,

Richard

And I'm sure it was an oversight, but thanks to Richard for him taking the time to respond too.
