Tourist Visa (Short Travel Visa)
If you are heading to Australia to visit family and friends or just for some fun, travelling experiences down under, then you will need a valid Tourist Visa to enter the country.
You will need to make a paper based Visitor Visa Application if:
- you are not from an ETA eligible country
- you are not from an EVV eligible country
- you want to visit Australia for longer than 3 months
- you are already a tourist in Australia and wish to extend your trip
- must have a valid passport
- must meet health requirements
- must not have any criminal convictions
- must have enough money to fund your travels and activities
It is important that you meet health and language requirements and do not have any criminal convictions. If you have a criminal conviction, or some questions about the health requirements, it is best to speak with a migration agent first so that we can help determine the best way for you to apply for a visitor visa to Australia.
If you are outside of Australia when you make your tourist visa application, then you must be outside of Australia when it is granted.
If you are already a tourist in Australia, and you are applying to extend your tourist visa, then you must be in Australia when the application is granted.
