Australian Visa Applications
Australian visas vary depending on the duration and exact purpose of your visit. Anyone travelling to Australia will require a visa to enter (except New Zealanders).
The 3 visas most commonly applied for visas are: Australian tourist visa (ETA), Australian business visa and the Australian working holiday visa.
For each visa, the application process varies, as do the entry requirements.
Australian ETA tourist visas are suitable for people travelling to Australia for short holidays, of up to 90 days in length.
Once your application has been submitted, it will usually take around 24 hours to process. You will receive an E-Mail confirmation with details of your visa, after it has been issued. From this point, your visa will be valid on your passport for the next 12 months, and you may leave and re-enter Australia as many times as you wish.
The cost of an Australian tourist visa application is $24.00 USD.
An Australian working holiday visa application will allow young people (aged between 18 and 31) to work and travel around Australia for up to 12 months.
WHV applications are generally processed within 48 hours; however it can take slightly longer during busy periods. Once your visa has been issued, you will have up to 12 months to enter Australia – and with the number of working holiday visas issued by the Australian Government restricted each year, it’s better to apply early!
Australian working holiday visa packages start at just $463.00 USD.
If you intend on visiting Australia to conduct business activities (for up to 90 days), you will be required to obtain an Australian business visa.
After receiving your application, processing is usually completed within 24 hours. Your visa confirmation will be E-Mailed to you, and you may leave and re-enter Australia for business purposes as many times as you wish for the next 12 months.
The cost of an Australian business visa application is $32.00 USD.
