Australian Visitor Visas
If you are not an Australian, NZ or Norfolk Island Passport holder, you must have a visa before you arrive in Australia.
If you are just coming over for a holiday, or to visit friends, or for a business meeting, you can apply for a Visitor Visa. The visa is normally granted for a period of 3 to 12 months. But you may be able to apply for a longer visitor visa, particularly if you are waiting for your parent visa to be processed.
You need a separate eVisitor for each family member travelling with you to Australia, including those who are younger than 18 years of age and are included on your passport.
Your Visitor Visa Application will be processed within 1 working day to 1 month, depending on your nationality and circumstances.
More information about visitor visas is available on the Department of Home Affairs website.
