Questions?

To approve your Visitor Visa, the Australian Department of Home Affairs evaluates carefully your financial situation. Therefore, you must have a regular income or financial incentives that will make you return to your home country at the end of your proposed stay.

Besides demonstrating financial or employment ties, the Australian government also evaluates if you have personal ties to your home country (such as studies, assets, or family), to prove that you'll depart Australia at the end of your authorized temporary stay.

The Australia eVisitor Visa (Subclass 651), Visitor Visa (Subclass 600), and the Australia ETA (Electronic Travel Authority, Subclass 601) are all travel documents that allow entry into Australia.

Still, they cater to different travel needs and have distinct characteristics:

  • eVisitor Visa (Subclass 651): An eVisitor Visa is valid for up to 12 months, but it lets you spend up to 3 months at a time. An eVisitor Visa is not available for visitors from every country.

  • Visitor Visa Subclass 600: This visa is for individuals who plan to visit Australia for tourism, business, or family visits. It allows stays of up to 3, 6, or 12 months.

The Subclass 600 visa has more flexibility and is open to all nationalities who meet the eligibility criteria. It’s designed for those not eligible for the ETA or eVisitor Visa or travelers who want to stay longer in the country.

  • ETA (Subclass 601): This is an electronic authorization for citizens of certain countries, including the United States, Canada, and many European nations.

It permits multiple entries, with each stay up to 3 months within 12 months. The ETA is typically used for tourism and short-term business trips. The process is quicker and more straightforward than the (e)Visitor Visa application.

Choosing between these two depends on your nationality, length, and purpose of stay.
