Guide about Australia Tourist Visa Types
4 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

Deciphering the proper Australian visa for your needs can sometimes seem daunting with the range of options available – from tourist and student visas to a variety of electronic travel authorizations such as the Australian ETA, Australian eVisitor Visa, Visa on Arrival, and the Australia Transit Visa. However, don't let this overwhelm you. Here at iVisa, we're committed to simplifying the travel documentation process for you!

The Australian government has implemented a well-structured visa system to streamline travel for visitors requiring a valid visa to enter the country. For instance, citizens from 40 European nations can conveniently apply for an eVisitor Visa, while individuals of other nationalities may be eligible for an ETA - both being electronic travel authorizations.

Fill me in

When these options are not applicable, some travelers may need to obtain a Visitor Visa or one of the Working Holiday Visas. For these types of visas, an appointment with an immigration officer at the embassy will be necessary. It's crucial to apply for the visa that best corresponds to your nationality and the intended purpose of your visit.

The requirements for obtaining a visa to enter Australia can differ significantly from person to person. These requirements are typically influenced by various factors, including the traveler's home country and the planned duration of their stay.

Please peruse the detailed information below about Australia's Visa Policy and the various types of visas available. Remember, we're here to assist you every step of the way, ensuring your visa application process is as straightforward and hassle-free as possible.

Australia Visitor Visa Types

Australia Electronic Travel Authority – ETA 601

This visa is available to passport holders from Brunei, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and the United States. It permits a 90-day consecutive stay in Australia within 12 months for tourism, transit, or business purposes. The ETA 601 visa is usually issued as a multiple-entry visa for 12 months, allowing a stay of up to 3 months after each arrival. Longer stays of 6 or 12 months are sometimes granted, but this is unusual. Visa holders are not eligible to work while on this visa, but they can study short courses of 12 weeks duration. Applicants must show proof of funds available and genuine reasons to return to their country​​.

Australia eVisitor 654

This visa is valid for a 90-day consecutive stay in Australia within 12 months for tourism, transit, or business purposes. The eVisitor visa is only available to passport holders of European Union member states and citizens of Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland, and Vatican City​​.

Australia Visitor Visa 600

This visa is for passport holders not eligible for ETA 601 or eVisitor visas. Eligible citizens can obtain it from an Australian Embassy or Consulate for tourism or business purposes. Visitors visiting Australia to cruise or see family and friends can apply for a 3, 6, or 12-month stay. The maximum stay with the Australian Visitor visa for business is three months​.

Australia Transit Visa 771

This visa allows eligible passport holders to transit through Australia to another destination. The transit visa allows travelers to stay in Australia for up to 72 hours until their connecting flight, as long as they have a confirmed booking and permission to travel to their final destination. However, those who obtain an Australia visa online (either the ETA or eVisitor for Australia) will not need to apply for a separate transit visa. The Australia online visa allows for multiple entries, including for transit, during 12 months of validity​​.

Please note that the primary criterion for all these visas is the country of the passport. The application process, fees, and required documentation may vary depending on the visa type and the applicant's nationality.

How to apply for an Australian visa online

If you apply online, the process is simple and takes 15 minutes or less. Follow these three steps to get your Australian ETA or eVisitor Visa:

  • First, you must fill out the online form on the iVisa application page. Your personal information must match your passport exactly. Otherwise, you might risk your visa being rejected.

  • Second, we'll ask you to double-check the information to ensure no errors. Select how soon you want to receive your visa if everything looks good.

  • Third, you pay for our visa services with your debit or credit card and apply.

Once your online visa is approved, we will send it via email. You can use this visa to travel to Australia temporarily for tourism or business purposes.
