This visa is for individuals travelling to Australia as tourists, such as for holidays or cruises, to visit family or friends, or for business purposes.
With this visa you can:
- Visit family or friends
- Go on a cruise or have a holiday
- Undertake business visitor activities
- Study or train for up to 3 months, in some circumstances.
The eVisitor visa is a temporary visa valid for 12 months. You can enter Australia at any time during its validity and stay for up to 3 months at a time, with multiple entries allowed. It begins on the date it is granted, and extensions are not possible; you need to apply for another visa for longer stays.
For further short stays or extended holidays, you may consider a Tourist stream Visitor visa (subclass 600), which must be applied for while within Australia. If you need to stay longer for different reasons, explore other visa options.
Family members cannot be included in the application; each family member, including those on your passport, must submit a separate application.
