Australia is a wonderful country to visit on holiday or for business.
With its fantastic climate, sand and surf, unique wildlife, and relaxed, laid-back culture, it’s no wonder Australia is such a popular travel destination!
But if you want to visit Australia, you need to get your visa sorted first.
If you want to visit Australia for travel, business, or family reasons, then a tourist visa may be suitable for you. You may be eligible for a travel or eVisitor visa if you hold a passport from one of several European, Asian, or North American countries (see lists below). These visas allow you to visit Australia for up to three months at a time, as often as you want within twelve months.
Alternatively, if you’re not a passport holder from a country listed below, you may be eligible for a single entry visa that allows you to visit Australia for up to three, six, or twelve months.
If you want to work in Australia before, after, or while you travel, you could also consider a working holiday visa
You don’t want to ruin your holiday or miss your grandmother’s 80th birthday because you made an easily-avoidable mistake with your visa. Australian tourist visas also come with several key restrictions you need to be aware of.
At McFarlane Migration Services, your Brisbane migration agent will review your situation, advise you on the most suitable tourist visa for you, and explain any restrictions you’ll be under.
That way, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you’re applying for the right visa the right way.
If you need to apply for a single entry visa or another, more complicated visa, your migration agent will also complete and lodge your visa application for you.
In Australia we have a saying: “better to be safe than sorry”. This means that it’s better to take a precaution than to take a risk. So if you want to travel to Australia, don’t take a risk – talk to McFarlane Migration first.
