Visa For Australia And Skilled Migration

 By: Sachin Airan
Australia is a beautiful place to visit. There are many tourist attractions including some of the world's most beautiful and dream inspiring beaches. Australia also has a really great music scene, especially in down town Sydney where you can see many natives (true natives, the Aborigines) create a recipe for the most delicious musical sounds your ears have ever tasted. It will be a treat for any music lover. You can also visit Brisbane, and experience some of the most exotically intoxicating art images on the planet. Are you ready? But wait, there's just one problem. You need a visa to get permission to enter the country. Now what?

All of the visitors coming into Australia, excluding New Zealand and Australia passport holders have to get a visa before entering the country. Some individuals of certain nationality may be able to get an Electronic Travel Authority document, granted that they have intentions of staying in the country for less than three months, and are traveling either on business or for tourist purposes.

If you are transiting throughout the country and your transit is for less than seventy-two hours, then you will need a transit visa. These kinds of visas do not cost you anything. You can visit the Australian High Commission for more information on this kind of document. If you just want to have a short stay in Australia, then you'll need to apply for a tourist or visitor visa. Please be aware that certain airlines may refuse entrance on to the plane without the proper passport and visas. If you plan on staying for more than just three months in Australia or you have not been found eligible for an Electronic Travel Authority visa, then you have to fill out a visa application with the Australian Consulate General.

You can obtain a visitor visa at the Australian Consulate General in your nearest city or town. You can also Google the keyword phrase Australian Consulate General with the name of your city and location. For example if you were in New York, you'd type "Australian Consulate General New York".

Visitor visas are then granted to individuals who sincerely intend on only visiting the country. They are not seeking employment or to stay in the country. These kinds of visas can let the holder use it once or multiple times. It all depends on the situation. There are two major visitor visas available:

Short visitation visa - this kind of visa will enable you to stay three, six or twelve months in Australia for tourist purposes. You'll be able to visit friends and loved ones with this kind of visitor. You can also do other non-business related activities.

Temporary visitation visa - this is a visa for those coming to Australia on business. This visa enables you to stay three months or less.

You'll be able to get an application from the Australian Consulate in your area. There are also application fees involved with the other visas that are not ETA. The fees may vary and they are subject to change at any time.
