Visa Requirements

Unless you are an Australian citizen, you will need a valid Australian visa to enter the country. New Zealand passport holders can apply for a visa upon arrival in the country. All other passport holders, regardless of age, must apply for a visa before leaving home. You can apply for a range of Australian visa types, including tourist visas and working holiday visas, via the ETA app or on the AU Department of Home Affairs website.

Some travelers may be eligible for an ETA, which is an electronically stored authority for travel to Australia. All ETA-eligible passport holders must apply for an ETA using the Australian ETA app (look for it in your phone's app store). For more information, see the Step by step guide.

If you are unable to use the app, you can apply online through ImmiAccount for another visa that suits your needs.
