Australian Tourist Visas

A Tourist visa is required for people who wish to come to Australia to travel or visit friends and family.

Travellers from non-ETA eligible countries, those wishing to stay in Australia for more than three (3) months or tourists already in Australia wishing to extend their stay are required to make a paper-based tourist visa application. Our Guided Visa Application Service will provide these tourist visa applicants with all of the information and advice required to make a valid tourist visa application.

Travellers from ETA eligible countries can obtain an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA).
