Explore Australia on a visitor visa.

Visitor Visa

The Visitor Visa (subclass 600) allows you to visit Australia for:

  • Holiday or sightseeing

  • Business trips

  • Visiting relatives or friends

  • Studying for less than 3 months


for up to three, six or 12 months, depending on the type of visitor visa issued.

Longer validity visitor visas are available for parents of Australian permanent residents and citizens.


Passport holders from certain countries do not have to apply for a visitor visa and can apply for an Electronic Travel Authority instead.




You cannot undertake paid work on a visitor visa.


The visa is subject to cancellation if you are not a genuine visitor on entry to Australia.
