Australian Visa options

 

Visa for Australia

You have to have a visa for Australia. If you don’t have one, you don’t get to enter the country. You’re not required to have a round-trip ticket. A one-way to Australia is enough, but be sure to be able to prove that you can support yourself financially. A one-way ticket can be cheaper if you want to be free to choose when and where you fly to during your trip. Apply here for an Australian visa fast and simple.

 

There are different kinds of visas. Before you apply, ask yourself how long you want to stay/work there.

Step 1: How many months do you want to stay?

Step 2: Do you want to work?

Step 3: Do you want to study?

Step 4: Are you older than 31?

With a tourist visa, you can stay in Australia for 3-6 or 12 months. Everyone, regardless of age, can apply and when accepted (depending on the one you chose) you can stay in Australia for 3-6 or 12 months.

 

There’s also an option to work or study in Australia. Then you have to choose a student visa or a work and holiday visa.

Tourist Visa

You’re not getting into Australia if you don’t have a visa.

Airlines always check (when you check in) if you have a visa. This visa is linked to the passport. Without a visa, there’s no way you can get on the plane. Do you have a criminal record in the Netherlands? Then there’s a chance your visa will be denied and you won’t be able to visit the country.

 

3-month visa (e-Visitor)

This visa is free, but you can’t extend it. You can, however, apply for another visa like the 6 or 12-month visa. Keep in mind that you have to apply for these at least two weeks before your e-Visitor expires.

TIP: did you forget to apply for one? You can do this minutes before you check in! The e-Visitor is electronically checked so you’ll get your visa a few seconds after you’ve applied!

 

6-12 month visa (Subclass 600)

You can apply for this visa for a period longer than 3 months, it’s also called the Subclass 600. This visa can be used for 3-6 and 12 months and allows you the opportunity to enter the country once or multiple times during your stay. However, the Australian immigration service chooses which one you get. For more information, you can always take a look on https://auvisa.org/nl/visa-longterm

 

TIP: the 12-month visa allows you to enter the country as many times as you like in the first 6 months (end date of those first six months is noted). Whenever you return in that period, your visa will be extended for another year! This way you can stay in Australia for a maximum of two years!!! However, the Australian government will decide whether or not to grant you unlimited traveling in and out of the country. When applying, make sure to explain that you’re planning on traveling in and out of the country!

 

Work and holiday visa

With a work and holiday visa, you can work in the county as long as you’re 18 and not older than 30 when applying. The visa is valid for one year and this starts when the visa is granted.

On this visa, you can stay in Australia for 12 months, study for 4 and work as much as you like, but only 6 months for the same employer.

You only get to apply for this once (an exception is made for a second time if on your first month you’ve done ‘extraordinary work’ for at least three continues months).

Student visa

A student visa is for everybody who’s main goal is to study in Australia. To apply for a student visa, you have to be in possession of a CEO (A Confirmation of Enrollment), which proves you’ve been accepted by an Australian university. This student visa is linked to that CEO. Which means that if your course of study is only for three months, you’ll only get a student visa for three months. If you want to travel through Australia after school, you have to apply for a subclass 600 to extend your stay in Australia. For more information take a look at https://auvisa.org/nl/visa-student
