How do I apply for an e-Visitor Visa?
Before starting your online application, you will need to create an ImmiAccount: https://online.immi.gov.au/lusc/login
To create an ImmiAccount you will need to use your email address and a memorable password.
Next, you will need to log in to your email account and open the email message from ImmiAccount. It is important that you open the email and click on the web link within the email message. This will confirm your account registration process.
Once you have created an ImmiAccount, you will be able to complete the e-Visitor Visa application online here: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visi/Visi/Visitor-visas/eVisitor-online-application#
You will need your passport details to complete the e-Visitor Visa application.
Finally, you will receive a copy of the e-Visitor Visa to the email address you have provided on your ImmiAccount. Although it is not essential, you may want to have a saved copy of the e-Visitor Visa with you when you travel.
Australia’s modern electronic Visa system doesn’t require a Visa label in your passport to confirm your immigration status. Upon check-in, airline staff will use your passport to electronically confirm authority to travel prior to boarding the aircraft.
Once granted, an e-Visitor Visa for Australia is subject to the following conditions:
- Those travelling to Australia must be free from tuberculosis
- At no point are you to work in Australia, other than by engaging in a business visitor activity
- Those travelling to Australia must not have any criminal convictions for which the sentence or sentences exceed 12 months. This applies whether the sentence is served or not.
- At no point are you to engage in any studies or training for more than three months
A breach of these conditions may result in your e-Visitor being cancelled. Furthermore, you may be asked to leave Australia as a result.
In addition, this Visa allows ongoing entry into Australia for up to three months at a time.
