Explanation on the Australia visa
Are you planning on travelling to Australia in 2020 or 2021 for a holiday or business trip? The visa requirement applies to all travellers; only if you possess an Australian or New Zealand passport are you exempt from applying for an Australia visa. Travelling children are also required to have their own visas.
The visa check takes place as soon as you check in or board the plane (depending on your airline); make sure to apply for your visa at a timely date. Most Australia visas are granted within a few workdays (urgent cases often within one hour), but the immigration service recommends submitting your application several weeks before departure if possible.
Choose the right type of visa
There are different types of visa for Australia. The most requested variant is the eVisitor (also known as the business or tourist visa), which can be used for both work-related visits as well as tourist trips. Aside from holidays and business trips, this visa can also be used for engaging in volunteer work, short studies and training. This visa for Australia can be applied for online.
The ETA visa Australia
Another highly requested visa is the ETA visa Australia (Electronic Travel Authority). The ETA is more expensive than the eVisitor, while the permissible travel purposes and maximum travel duration are the same. Applying for the ETA is thus only required for travellers that cannot make use of the eVisitor visa for Australia. When this website makes mention of the Australia visa, it generally refers to the eVisitor, as it is by far the most popular type of visa applied for by travellers. It is also the variant which you can apply for directly on this website. Apply for the Australia visa now.
