Australian Visitor Visas


If you are not eligible for an Electronic Travel Authority or E Visitor Visa, or have a declared criminal conviction, you should apply for a Visitor Visa instead.

A Visitor Visa (Subclass 600) allows travellers to enter Australia for tourism or business purposes. A visitor visa may be valid for different periods including up to three (3), six (6) or twelve (12) months.

In some cases, the embassy may only allow a shorter stay period of one month and may also impose a restrictive condition, which may prevent the holder from applying for further visas from within Australia.

To qualify for a Visitor Visa, you must hold a valid passport. Applicants who are not eligible to apply for a Visitor Visa online are required to submit a paper application through their nearest Australian immigration office.

Average processing times can range between four to six weeks.

If the Government requests additional documentation, this can affect the processing period. In some cases, applicants may be required to undergo health checks.
