Cocos Islands, also known as Keeling Islands, is an Australian territory in the middle of the Indian Ocean. And it's not called Cocos Islands for anything! You're sure to spot coconut palms everywhere. With a lively nightlife, plenty of swimming and snorkeling spots, and pristine beaches, you're sure to have a memorable trip. If you are feeling adventurous, we recommend the Pulu Keeling National Park.
Before leaving for Cocos Islands, you need to see whether or not you need a visa to cross the border. Since the island is an Australian territory, the Australian visa policy is in place. Bear in mind that Australia has agreements in place that grant visa exemption for many countries. Citizens of some countries may need to apply for an ETA, an electronic travel authorization, before entering Australian territory.
At the same time, electronic visas called eVisitor passes that are available for all countries in the Schengen Area, and grants a 90-day stay. Citizens of New Zealand can access Cocos Islands with no restrictions ever since Australia and New Zealand signed the Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement. All the other nationalities that are not visa exempt or eligible for an electronic visa must submit an application at their nearest diplomatic mission or embassy of Australia.
To learn which category you fit in, we recommend that you use our Visa Checker Tool. All you have to do is click on the Visa Checker button you see in the top right corner and fill in the boxes.

If you do need one, you'll be given some useful info such as a list of embassies near you where you can apply.
Although electronic visas are available, iVisa does not currently process the territory's visa applications. We are still happy to any and every traveler. That's why we offer a free 24/7 support service at your disposal to answer any questions you may have about the visa process.
Regarding visa requirements, you'll need to find out the specific rules for citizens of your country. You can find a lot of info online, but it is not always the most reliable; we always advise you to use it for reference only. We recommend that you contact the issuing authority or embassy and ask your questions there. They can give you the most legitimate and up-to-date answers.
Meanwhile, what we can tell you is that all travelers who take a trip to Cocos Islands need to have a passport that does not expire for at least 6 months from their planned date of arrival.
Even though iVisa cannot process your Cocos Islands visa, we hope that the above information is helpful.
