Australia visa application always mandatory
Are you travelling to Australia in 2023 or 2024 for a holiday or business trip? Then you must apply for an Australia e-visa. This requirement applies to all travellers, including tourists and business travellers with UK or EU nationality. Children also need to have their own passport and visa. The only times a visa is usually not required is if you have Australian or New Zealand nationality, or if you only have a connecting flight in Australia.
EU and UK citizens will be checked for a valid visa when you check in or board the plane. You should therefore submit your application well before departure. Australian visas are approved on average in 5 days. Urgent applications are usually approved within 60 minutes. However, immigration authorities recommend that you apply for your e-visa before you book your trip. The sooner you can be sure you will be allowed to enter the country, the better.
Which visa type: do I need an eVisitor or ETA Australia?
Tourists and business travellers can use the eVisitor visa or the ETA Australia. These two visa types are also suitable for visiting friends or family, and for attending a short study or training course. The requirements and validity of the two visas are the same.
Are you a UK or European Union national?
Then you should apply for an eVisitor visa Australia. This also applies to travellers with the nationality of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Vatican City and Switzerland. This saves you the higher application costs and more complicated application procedure of the ETA Australia. The eVisitor visa is the most applied for visa type among European travellers, for both tourist and business trips.
Do you have Canadian or American nationality?
Then you cannot apply for an eVisitor, but you can submit an ETA application. This website is intended for European travellers. When this website mentions the "Australia visa", it always refers to the eVisitor variant.
Requirements and validity period
Before applying for an Australia visa, it is advised checking whether you meet all the visa requirements. A brief summary of the most important requirements:
- You do not intend to carry out voluntary work that would otherwise be done by a paid employee

Validity of the Australia visa
The visa is valid for 12 months from the date of approval. However, the validity expires immediately if you acquire a new passport. You may enter Australia an unlimited number of times within this validity period. Each stay in the country may last a maximum of three consecutive months per visit. Read more about the validity period.

In urgent need of an Australia visa?
If you want to apply for a visa for your trip to Australia at the last minute, it is best to submit an urgent application. This can be done with the same application form. You can indicate that you would like your application to be processed as a matter of urgency. A surcharge of € 17,50 per person applies to this. Urgent deliveries take place within 60 minutes in 95% of the cases, but delivery times can never be guaranteed. One in twenty applications is subjected to a more extensive manual check, which can cause a delay of several days. Read more about urgent deliveries.
