Online Australian tourist visa application to be expanded to Chile
The Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has announced that citizens of Chile will soon have access to a convenient online tourist visa for Australia.
The release from DIAC regarding the addition of Chile to the list of countries eligible for the e676 Australian tourist visa online application reads as follows:
From 20 September 2011, citizens of Chile can apply for the e676 electronic tourist visa online.
The application process is fast, secure and convenient, and gives applicants the ability to check the progress of their application electronically.
The visa does not require a visa label to be placed in a passport.
A notification is sent to the client providing details of the visa and airlines are able to confirm the visa entitlements through the Advanced Passenger Processing System.
Clients can also, if they wish, print a copy of their visa approval notification email to carry with them whilst traveling to Australia.
