Application Fees

2022 Application Fees

You will only be charged once on acceptance to the 2022 Visa WOAP programme which will be advised Thursday 17 March. All fees are due 20 April 2022. Failure to pay fees on the due date will result in your application being declined and not included in the programme.
This is the total fee paid to WCET - no further fees or commissions are taken.

As with previous years, most of the Burger, Cocktail and Dine fees are calculated using the same formula we have used for many years, which takes into consideration the seating capacity of your establishment, and the number of days open during your selected platform and includes a base charge of $250 + GST fee per application. There are exceptions to this rule for Cocktail Wellington and takeaway focused establishments, outlined in the exceptions table below.


To determine whether your venue is eligible for the Regional base fee, please refer to the Downtown Levy Area Map.

There is a minimum formula fee (seats x days open x 0.65c) of $200 + GST, and a maximum formula fee of $1,000 + GST. 

Note: this does not include the $200 - $250 + GST base fee per platform.
