Visitor (Tourist) visa



A Visitor visa is a temporary visa that can be used to enter Australia for a holiday or recreational purpose, or to visit family or friends. It can also be used for other short-term non-work purposes such as studying for up to 3 months.


Unfortunately, citizens from most countries including Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia are not eligible for an ETA (Visitor) visa or an eVisitor visa. This means that they must apply for and obtain a Visitor visa (Subclass 600) in order to visit Australia.


The Visitor visa will allow for a stay of 3, 6 or 12 months and will be valid for single or multiple entries depending on your circumstances.


Applicants for even a Visitor visa must fill in a paper application and attach a considerable amount of supporting documentation. The Australian Government is concerned with (amongst other things) the risk of an Applicant overstaying their visa, breaching their visa conditions, as well as the financial capabilities of the Applicant, and their enquiries are partly based upon these questions. Unless strict guidelines are followed and all enquiries are satisfied it is highly likely that a visa application will be refused (about 70% of all Australian visa applications are refused).
