Australia Visa – How To Apply For An Australian Visa

GENERIC VISA INFORMATIONIf you are traveling to Australia you will need an Australia Visa. Before you begin a trip to any area of the world, you should always review all official requirements to help make sure that you don’t experience any unnecessary or unexpected delays. If you’re a United States citizen who is traveling to Australia for any reason, a tourist visa or a business visa will be required (depending on the nature of your trip).

One of the many benefits about being a United States citizen traveling to Australia, however, is that all visas are handled electronically. This means that you don’t actually need to mail any documents prior to processing – you just need to fill out the appropriate application form online and pay the nominal processing fee.

You should still review all of your existing documents to help make sure that everything is in order, however. You will want to make sure that your current United States passport will be valid for at least 90 days after your trip officially begins. You’ll also want to make sure that your passport has at least two full blank pages that can be used for any stamps that are required when you enter the country.

If you need to renew your existing passport, apply for a new one, order blank pages for your passport or perform other important tasks, you can always do so using expedited passport services in your area.
