REQUIREMENTS FOR AUSTRALIA VISA
The 2 authorizations have the same characteristics, and you just have to process an e-Visa application, because the government authorities will send you the one that is relevant to your situation.
The documentation required to process your Australia Visa is:
- A passport number
- An email address to receive your visa
- A bank card to pay
If any of these elements are missing, your application will be saved so that you can complete it later.
Depending on your nationality, you will receive either an ETA visa or an eVisitor visa Australia. Both visas or travel authorisations are the same, and we will process the correct one based on your passport.
The application process for the Australian eVisa is done online, without having to leave your home. At Visagov we will process the correct visa according to your nationality. All you have to do is fill in our simplified form to help you process it and minimise any possibility of error.
You must print out your australian visa and present it with your passport on arrival in Australia.
