Traveling down under? Are you South African? You will need a Australian visitor visa...
Whether you wish to dive the great barrier reef, marvel at the Sydney Opera House or just visit your friends or family you are going to need a travel visa.
Visas can be issued for any amount of time from 3 months to 3 years but generally one is only allowed to stay in Australia for maximum 3 months per entry within their visa validity dates.
Visa Box will assist you with creating your online profile, completing your online application and uploading all of the supporting documents on your behalf. Our job is to advise and review all supporting documents prior to submission. Visitor visa applications are generally processed in around 1 month. Once the application has been lodged online the applicant would be sent a letter requesting them to attend at a Australian VAC closest to them to provide their biometrics. Applicants will need to take this letter with them to an AVAC when providing biometrics so the AVAC is able to match their application with the biometrics collected.
Holders of some foreign passports (e.g. British, Spanish, Italy etc.) will be entitled to apply for an electronic visa which will grant them pre-approved entry into Australia. This pre-approval is generally issued within 48 hours and is virtual (you won't get a physical document like a visa in your passport). This electronic visa (ETA or eVisitor visa) is valid for 12 months from date of issue and allows for multiple stays of up to 3 months. Call us today to find out if you qualify to apply through this route.
