Visitor Visas

Australia is a wonderful country and some times people just want to visit Australia for a holiday, sightseeing, social or recreational reasons or simply say ‘G’day Mate‘ to relatives or friends. People may also just want to come to Australia for other short-term non-work related reasons.

The Visitor visa is the perfect visa for those people wanting to visit Australia temporarily and the cost is very nominal. The Visitor visa is generally for short-term visits of 3 months and can be for a single trip or on a multiple visit basis. In some certain circumstances, the Visitor visa can be a number of years with 12 month stays.

Visitor visas include:

There are generally 4 streams for the Visitor visa (subclass 600), namely:

  • Tourist stream: holiday, recreation or to visit family and friends
  • Business Visitor stream: short business visit
  • Sponsored Family stream: visit their family
  • Approved Destination Status stream: organised tour groups from China
