Visas for Australia 🇦🇺
You sure will do! There are a couple of options and we suggest you organise this sooner rather than later as the application time can vary. We’ve broke down those options below;
Travel Only (No work) 🏄♀️
If you’re only looking at travelling in Australia and have no intentions of working or doing a longer stay than you’ll need to apply for a tourist visa ‘Electronic Travel Authority – Subclass 601‘. This is typically for 3 months and can be applied for online, find out more here.
Work & Travel (Working Holiday) 🦘
You can find out more and apply for your Visa via the Australian Government website. It’s a pretty simple process but as always it’s important that you double check things yourself before you apply/begin your travels.
There is also another option for those individuals looking to stay for upto 1 year in Australia (without working). Click here to find out more about the Subclass 600 Visitor Visa.
