    Australian Visa 30th Jun 09 at 8:59 AM
    This is a thread started for those who search for the topic of Australian Visa, please note i have also advised on Russian Visa, Vietnamese Visa and Chinese Visa (as of 7/7/09)

    This is for British Citizens but also applies to those from some European Countries (for specifics please look here: http://www.immi.gov.au/visitors/tourist/evisitor/eligibility.htm

    The Visa

    Ok, the Aussies may have been born from Criminals of years gone by. And they have had their arses whipped by GB in the Olympics, they are crap at football, no longer kings of swimming, garbage at Cricket and no longer world champions of Rugby League.

    Now - You may think that would make them bitter - Not so, in fact the Aussies have sat down and had a word. The topic of the meeting must have been "how can we make it as easy as possible for tourists to enter our Kangaroo, snake bite, mosquito riddled country"
    And let me tell you, the meeting went well, very well in fact. Australia must lay claim to being the most easily accessible country whereby there are entry requirements for a British citizen - or a Pom. They devised what is known as 'the eVisitor' which basically is an electronic form you fill in (similar to the ESTA for the US)

    Not only is it very easy, its free and takes only a few minutes. Best of all you will normally get a decision instantly.

    The Process

    Arguably it is not actually a Visa, well not in sense you would expect.

    Head on down to:

    https://www.ecom.immi.gov.au/visas/app/uu?form=TV

    Fill out the form, submit it and make a note of your ref number.

    Then go to this place: https://www.ecom.immi.gov.au/inquiry/query/query.do?action=eVisa

    Enter the ref number and a few details and there you go.

    Your Visa/Evisitor/ is sorted.

    Now throw another shrimp on the barbie, sit back and wallow in the recent sporting misery of our convict brothers
