Default Paying Visa Fee from India for 189

Folks
I have got the invite for 189 and am need to submit the application by Sep 4'th.
I tired to pay the fee using my Indian Debit card (Citibank Suvidha) but it failed due to some unspecified reason.

I went to ICICI bank to get a traveler card but they are insisting i have a visa or flight tickets.

I need to pay 7200 AUD. Has anyone succefully paid something like this using Citibank Debit card?

Any other ideas on how to make the payment?

thanks

Payment cannot be made using Debit Card, it can be either made using Credit Card or Forex Card.

Options:

1. If you have a Credit Card with that limit you can go ahead and use that, but it will attract conversion rate charges and some tax.

2. Visit HDFC or Axis Bank - state you need to pay VISA fess and show them the invite - they normally issue the forex card and load it with the amount, ensure you load it with some 100 AUD extra to be on a safer side.

3. If you have any relative or friend in australia, they can pay on your behalf and you can transfer that amount to their respective accounts.

hope this helps!

good luck
