Australia welcomes tourists once more

As of 21 February, Australia has opened it’s borders to the world and welcomes tourists onshore. After months of being shut down to the world, the Australian tourism industry is ready to welcome travellers to our shores.

For most fully vaccinated travellers, this means that there are no quarantine restrictions as long as you test negative for covid-19 before and after entering Australia. This change has improved access and affordability to enter and experience all Australia has to offer.

Why visit Australia?

Australia is a diverse and beautiful country. From pristine white beaches, colourful coral reefs, tropical rainforests, to historic metropolitan cities, wine country, and world-class museums. Australia has something for everyone. Our wildlife is unique and diverse. Whether you visit our world-class zoos or hike our bushlands, you will see creatures found nowhere else on earth.

People from more than 220 countries and territories call Australia home and we are one of the most ethnically diverse countries in the world.

Australia is a welcoming country and a perfect place for a holiday to unwind and enjoy the sights any time of year.

Visitor Visa (subclass 600)

The most common tourist visa utilised is the Visitor Visa (subclass 600) used for genuine visitors to come experience the beauty of Australia.

Once you meet certain requirements, you can come visit for up to 12 months.

This visa is for those coming to holiday and does not include working rights. Perfect for a visit to our scenic Australian beaches and leave the office behind for a few weeks.

Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417/462)

Working holidays visas may be an alternate option if you are interested in working and living in Australia for 12 months. You must be from an eligible country and aged between 18-30 years old. This visa can be a great option for backpackers or those wanting to experience Australian culture and community, while still making money to afford the lifestyle.
