What Is The "eVisitor"?
The eVisitor is a free tourist visa for Australia.
It’s only for European passport holders at this stage. US & Canadian passport holders may be included in the future but should apply for a regular tourist visa for Australia until then.
Once you have an eVisitor, you can visit Australia for up to 3 months at a time. You have 12 months from the date the eVisitor is granted. The eVisitor works just like a multiple entry tourist visa - you can come and go as many times as you like within your 12 month window.
How Much Does An eVisitor Cost?
An eVisitor costs nothing - it is free of charge.
How Long Does It Take To Get An eVisitor?
You should get your eVisitor pretty much straight away. Most eVistors are automatically granted and you should receive your eVisitor via email notification within a few minutes of application.
Which Passports Are Eligible?
All EU passports and some other European passports are eligible.
The complete list of eligible passports is as follows: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech, Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom (UK) and Vatican City.
