Australia Travel Visa

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is a website.

The Australian Government requires that you have an Australian visa to enter Australia, unless you are an Australian passport holder or qualifying New Zealand passport holder.

For example, if you are travelling to Australia on holiday you will need a tourist visa. You can apply online for an instant ETA Tourist Visa for tourism trips up to three months. If you are traveling to Australia on business, you can obtain an ETA Business Visa.

How to Apply for an Instant ETA Travel Visa

  • Complete the Online ETA Visa Application.
  • Enter travel information and passport details for each traveller.
  • After payment, your application is processed instantly and linked to your passport number.
  • Your ETA status is confirmed by email within a few minutes.

ETA visas are processed instantly and linked electronically to your passport. Your ETA will be verified automatically when you check in for  your flight to Australia and by an Australian Immigration officer when you arrive.

Alternatively, if you intend to travel to Australia for up to 12 months, you can apply for a Long-Stay e600 Visitor Visa or a Paper-Based 600 Visitor Visa, depending on your country of citizenship.
