A Visa For Australia

"Getting a visa for Australia is the first step."

You need a visa for Australia. Everybody (except New Zealanders) needs a visa to enter Australia.

So as you shop around for the best cheap flights to Australia don't forget to also find out about your Australia visa.

This section tells you about the different Australian visas available, depending on which country you travel from, the purpose of your trip and the length of your stay.

Available Visas For Australia

If you are visiting Australia as a tourist it will be very easy to get a visa. Look at the Australia travel visa or ETA.

But you might want to stay for longer, you might want to work or study here...

If you plan a longer trip to Australia or want to work here, then the following pages will help you to find out which Australia visa you need and how to apply for it.

Depending on the nature of your trip you will apply for an Australia tourist visa or an Australia work visa.

Many young people enjoy the opportunity to visit Australia for up to one year and work during their stay. Unfortunately the Australian working holiday visa is not available for travellers over 30.

But if you are over 30 you may be able to get one of the many other Australian working visas.

Beyond that there are the Australian business visa, the Australian student visa, visas for relatives and also Australian retirement visas.

And then there are the people like me, who visit Australia on a tourist visa, fall hopelessly in love with the country and want to know more about emigrating to Australia (as I did 15 years ago)...
