Visa Requirements for Australia

Those travelling into Australia from another country (other than New Zealand where special rules exist) are required to apply in advance for a visa allowing entry into the country.

Many different types of entry visas are issued by the Government of Australia. The exact type depends on a number of factors, including type of visa being sought, the nationality of your passport, age, etc. The Government of Australia provides an online tool to determine the type and cost of the visa required for your own situation.
