Australia eVisitor Visa: Do French citizens need a visa to visit Australia?

Other Australian Visa options for French citizens

Apart from the eVisitor Visa, French citizens have other visa options to visit Australia, including:

  • Australian Working Holiday Visa: French 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's ideal for sabbaticals, long vacations, backpacking trips, short-term studies, or temporary work. Please note that the eVisitor Visa allows you to study for up to three months, but you cannot work while in Australia.

  • Australian Student Visa: The Australian Student Visa is for French 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.
