Visa information

The Visa Finder may assist you to decide which visa best suits your circumstances and provide advice on associated requirements.

Please ensure the activity you intend to undertake in Australia is appropriate for your chosen visa. There are no refunds of the visa application charge if you apply for the wrong type of visa.

It is recommended that applicants do not make non-refundable financial commitments in relation to their travel prior to receiving a visa to Australia. The existence of travel bookings is not grounds for prioritising applications. To avoid disappointment, applications should be lodged well in advance of intended travel. The department will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by clients whose visa application was finalised later than expected or was unsuccessful.

Once you have decided on a visa type, select the visa subclass here to view useful information about the subclass you are applying for and a step-by-step guide on how to lodge your application.

It is strongly recommended that applicants choose the online lodgement option where available. By lodging online, you will be able to monitor your application progress, view the information provided in your application, reuse some of the information you provide for future applications and update your information or provide further information straight into your application.

Can I apply for more than one visa at a time?

Applicants can apply for multiple visas at the same time; however, it is important to note that the grant of a visa may cease other visas held by the applicant. Depending on the reasons for applying for multiple visas, it may be better to request a multiple entry visa rather than applying for multiple visas.

Stay Period vs Validity – what is the difference?

The stay period is how long you can stay in Australia on each trip while the validity is the expiry date of the visa. An applicant may stay in Australia a few times during the validity of their visa if the visa has a multiple entry condition. If an applicant wishes to travel to Australia on multiple occasions, they should do the following:

  • request a stay period covering the period of their longest single visit; and
  • in their application, specify other future travel they would like considered and the length of the visa validity.

Please note that applications are assessed on their individual circumstances and there are no guarantees that because a long stay, long validity or multiple entry condition has been requested, that it will be granted.
