For the Govt?
It is application fee for the spouse visa
Yes you have to pay at the time of your application online so that your application can be processed. It is paid to the Gov
Does that answer all your questions?
Yes that is absolutely right.
Being a citizen and paying taxes here, does not exempt you from the processing fee.
That does not guarantee anything, it is a non-refundable fee, even if the application is rejected, the processing fee does not get refunded.
It is the fee that is charged from all the applicants for processing their visa applications
These are the rules, I can not comment on if they are morally right or not.
