A Visitor Visa (also known as a Tourist Visa) is a temporary visa that can be used to enter Australia for a holiday, tourism and recreational purposes, or to visit family or friends. It can also be used for business and other short-term non-work purposes such as studying for up to 3 months. This visa allows foreign citizens to stay for 3, 6 or 12 months, and the visa will be valid for single or multiple entries, depending on your circumstances.
Applicants for a Tourist Visa to Australia must fill in an application and attach a considerable amount of supporting documentation. The Australian Government is concerned with the risk of an Applicant overstaying their visa, breaching their visa conditions, as well as the financial capabilities of the applicant, and their inquiries are partly based upon these questions. Unless strict guidelines are followed, and all inquiries are satisfied it is highly likely that a visa application will be refused (approximately 70% of all Australian visa applications are refused).
