Visa Assistance

Every visitor to Australia MUST have at least an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). Some people require various types of visa.  The ETA can be applied for on line for select passport holders, or you may need to use a travel agent to apply for the visa. It is typically processed within 24 hours and is free, but you need to allow at least two weeks before you travel.

You must be outside Australia when you apply and when the eVisitor or ETA is granted. The ETA allows you to enter Australia for up to three months at a time as a tourist. Your passport must have a minimum of 6 months validity from the time of your departure to Australia.

You will 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.

No label will be placed in your passport. When you check in to fly to Australia, the airline staff will electronically confirm your passport and eVisitor details.

*For New Zealand visitors you will require a valid NZ passport and in most cases delegates will be granted an electronic Special Category visa on arrive in Australia. If a delegate is a New Zealand citizen but holds a travel document other than a NZ passport they will need to apply for a visa before travelling to Australia.

Health Insurance

Australia has reciprocal health care agreements with a number of countries. Reciprocal health care agreements provide health care in some circumstances, but will not cover all health care needs. They do not replace the need for travel insurance. We do encourage all visitors to Australia for Panpapanpalya to obtain adequate health insurance.
