New South Wales is one of the most populous Australian states. State capital Sydney is world famous for its opera house and Harbour Bridge as well as being Olympic host in 2000. With a thriving commercial centre and strong trade links to Asia, the state attracts a lot of emigrants each year, many of whom base themselves in Sydney, along the coast in Wollongong, Newcastle, Port Macquarie or Ballina, or further inland at Wagga Wagga, Griffith, Broken Hill, Bourke or Dubbo.

Australian Capital Territory is home to the Australian capital city of Canberra and lies within the state of New South Wales. It attracts many people from overseas, with over 20% of its population being drawn from English-speaking countries, chiefly the UK and New Zealand.

Victoria is the southernmost mainland state and has a correspondingly more temperate climate which may be why it is the most highly populated state. The state capital Melbourne is Australia’s second largest city, a major port and a hub of economic activity. It is a major relocation destination for people emigrating for work. Our participants ship to locations throughout Victoria including Geelong, Traralgon, Bairnsdale, Ballarat, Bendigo, Shepparton and Kerang.

 

Tasmania is an island state lying to the south of Melbourne across the Bass Strait. It has a population of just half a million, more than half of whom live in the state capital Hobart. The remainder live chiefly in Launceston, Devonport and Burnie. The population is almost entirely descended from British ancestor and remains a popular location for UK people wanting to visit or emigrate to, perhaps because the climate is so similar to that of the UK.

 

Queensland occupies the North East of the Australian mainland and includes Brisbane (the state capital), and many coastal towns such as Surfers Paradise, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Townsville and Cairns, and inland towns such as Normanton, Cloncurry, Emerald and Charleville. Immigrants and homegrown Australians alike settle here for the semi-tropical climate and the lifestyle. Mining and agriculture dominate the economy, but tourism is also a major wealth-generator with the Great Barrier Reef just offshore.

 

South Australia includes the smaller but vibrant city of Adelaide and is home to the world famous Barossa Valley where many of Australia’s best wine labels are located. Along the coast are the towns of Port Lincoln, Elliston, Ceduna and Nullabor, while inland towns include Burra, Lyngthurst, Coober Pedy and Marla.

 

Western Australia occupies a third of the Australian mainland but contains just 10% of the population, most of whom live in the cooler south west of the state. The state capital in Perth is to be found on the south western coast, surrounded by Albany, Bunbury, Mandurah, Kalgoorlie and Geraldton. To the north lie Exmouth, Karratha, Port Hedland, Broome and Kununurra.

 

The Northern Territory is home to less than 1% of the Australian population, owing to its extreme climate. But it nevertheless attracts many visitors and immigrants each year to see its many stunning national parks and natural land formations, most notably Uluru (Ayers Rock). The state capital is Darwin on the northern coast, but most towns are inland including Alice Springs, Barkly, Barrow Creek, Renner Springs, Daly Waters and Pine Creek.

 

Visit Visa to Australia

The Visitor visa (subclass 600) is for people who want to travel Australia as tourists, for business or to visit family. It is a temporary visa.

This visa has four streams:

  • Tourist stream: for people travelling to Australia for a holiday, recreation or to visit family and friends. If you apply for this visa in Australia, you must be in Australia when the visa is decided. If you apply for this visa outside Australia, you must be outside Australia when the visa is decided.
  • Business Visitor stream: for business people travelling to Australia for a short business visit. This includes making a general business or employment enquiry, negotiations or participating in a conference. You must be outside Australia when you apply and when the visa is decided.
  • Sponsored Family stream: for people travelling to Australia to visit their family. You must have a sponsor who might be asked to provide a bond. You must be outside Australia when you apply and when the visa is decided. You cannot apply for another visa after you have arrived in Australia.
  • Approved Destination Status stream: for people from the People’s Republic of China who are travelling in an organised tour group. You must be outside Australia when you apply and when the visa is decided.

 

Eligibility

This visa is no longer open to new individual applicants.

You will now need to apply for a Visitor visa (subclass 600) Tourist stream.
See: Visitor Visa (subclass 600)

For a short period, approved agents will continue to be able to lodge online Tourist Visa (subclass 676) applications on behalf of eligible passport holders.

Eligible passports are citizen passports issued by the following countries:

  • Bahrain
  • Brunei
  • India
  • Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
  • Kuwait
  • Oman
  • Qatar
  • United Arab Emirates

Obligations

You must comply with your visa validity period and conditions while in Australia on a Tourist visa. A breach of these conditions may result in your visa being cancelled and you may have to leave Australia.

You can find information about your visa validity and conditions in the letter or email advising you that your visa is granted or by using the department’s Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) facility.
See: Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO)

Visa validity

You may be granted a Tourist visa for:

  • a stay of up to 12 months, or a shorter period, depending on the purpose of the visit and your personal circumstances
  • a single entry or multiple entries to Australia.

You must leave Australia on or before the date that your visa expires. If you remain in Australia beyond the stay period allowed by your visa, your visa will automatically cease. This applies even if you have a long validity, multiple entry visa. 
Example: If you are granted a three month stay Tourist visa and arrive in Australia on 1 January 2013, you must leave on or before 1 April 2013.

Visa conditions

You must comply with the following visa conditions:

  • you must not work while in Australia
    Note: Voluntary work may be permitted.
  • you must not study for more than three months while in Australia.

In addition, your visa may be granted with the following conditions:

  • ‘No further stay’ – this means that  you cannot apply for any other visa (except for a Protection visa) while you remain in Australia. This condition may be waived in exceptional circumstances.
  • ‘Maximum 12 month stay in 18 months’ – this means that you must not remain in Australia for more than 12 months in any 18 month period. Your visa will automatically cease if you stay in Australia for more than 12 months continually. Your visa may be cancelled if you return to Australia and stay for a period which would result in you spending more than 12 months in Australia in any 18 month period. 
    Example: If you stay in Australia from 1 December 2012 until 1 October 2013 (10 months), you will only be able to spend two more months in Australia until 1 June 2014. If you remain in Australia for more than two months before 1 June 2014, your visa may be cancelled.
  • Maintain health insurance – this means that  you must have adequate health insurance while you are in Australia. Your visa may be cancelled if you do not maintain adequate health insurance cover. Reciprocal health arrangements are not adequate to meet this requirement. If you apply for another visa in the future, you may be asked to provide evidence that you held health insurance while you were in Australia. If you cannot provide evidence, you may not be eligible to be granted another Tourist visa.

Health insurance policy

If you need to have health insurance while in Australia the health insurance policy:

  • can be with any Australian insurer or reputable overseas insurer
  • doesn’t need to be with a specialist health insurance company
  • can include an excess and standard ‘pre-existing condition’ clauses
  • must be fully comprehensive (that is, it must provide at least Medicare equivalent cover including hospital, emergency, general practitioner and pharmaceutical benefits. 
    See: Medicare

It is preferable that your health insurance is held with an Australian insurer but it can be made through a reputable overseas insurer which provides the same level of cover.
