Visa to Australia from Japan: Do Japanese citizens need a visa to visit Australia?

Yes, citizens from Japan with a valid passport visiting Australia must obtain an entry document as demanded by the Australian department. However, the good news is that Japanese citizens traveling to Australia for tourism and business purposes don’t have to visit an embassy or consulate.

Instead, they can apply for an ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) online via our platform.

What is the Australia ETA for Japanese citizens?

The ETA (subclass 601) is a travel document offered to eligible passport holders, including Japanese citizens, who wish to visit Australia for tourism or business purposes for up to 90 days.

One of the key benefits of the Australian ETA visa is that it is electronically linked to the traveler's passport, eliminating the need for a physical visa sticker or stamp. Applicants from eligible countries can conveniently apply for the ETA visitor visa online, making it a swift and hassle-free option for those intending to have a short stay in Australia.

However, it's essential to understand that an ETA visa does not permit you to work in Australia. If your plan involves working during your stay, you must apply for a different visa category that allows employment in the country.

How to apply for your Australian ETA online from Japan

Wanderlust calling? Let's make your Australian journey a reality by applying for your ETA with us. Just follow these three simple steps:

Step 1: Complete the online form or use the iVisa app to enter your personal details, ensuring they match your passport. Always double-check all details to avoid errors.

Step 2: Choose your preferred processing time and pay the fee on our secure platform.

Step 3: Upload the required documents for your application, and get ready to travel!

Our expert guidance is on standby, ensuring you have a smooth journey. Once your visa gets the green light, the confirmation of your approved ETA will be sent by email.

Benefits of the Australian ETA

With this ETA you’ll get the following benefits for your journey to Australia:

  • Multiple entries: The ETA allows multiple entries into Australia within 12 months, allowing visitors to come and go as they please for business or tourism purposes.

  • Short processing time: The ETA is typically processed very quickly, allowing visitors to plan their travel to Australia with minimal delay.

  • Validity: The ETA is valid for 12 months from the date of issue or until the passport expires, whichever date comes first. This provides visitors ample time to plan and undertake multiple trips to Australia.

  • No stamp or label required: The ETA is electronically linked to the traveler's passport, eliminating the need for a physical visa stamp or label.

  • **Cost-effective: The ETA is a cost-effective way to apply for an Australian visa, with a lower application fee than most other visa types..

Other Australian Visa options for Japanese citizens

Apart from the ETA, Japanese citizens have other visa options to visit Australia. Check the options below.

Australian Working Holiday Visa

Japanese citizens can apply for the Working Holiday Visa Program to enter Australia for travel and work purposes. This visa allows travelers aged between 18 and 30 to stay for up to 12 months and work in the country. It is ideal for gap years, long holidays, backpacking trips, short-term studies, or short work periods.

Australian Student Visa

The Australian Student Visa is for Japan students who wish to study temporarily in Australia. You must be accepted into an Australian educational institution and meet the relevant visa requirements to qualify.

Australia Permanent Residency Visa

The process of applying for a Permanent Residency Visa in Australia varies depending on the reason for immigration. It could be related to joining a spouse, finding work, or other purposes. Supporting documents, such as employer contracts, bank statements, and marriage certificates, may be required to prove that you meet the visa requirements.
