Frequently Asked Questions


Can I find job in Australia on tourist visa?

No. If you want to work in Australia, you have to apply for a working holiday visa that allows you to visit for up to a year.


How early should I apply for the Australian visa?

90% of visitor visas are processed within 29 days, so it will be good to start about 2 months before you want to travel. However, if you are eligible for the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) or Electronic visas, then you do not have to apply that early because the processing time is much shorter.


How much should I take when travelling to Australia?

Australia's guideline of 'sufficient amount' is $5000 but the amount may vary however depending on how long you are planning to stay.


Is it safe to visit Australia?

Crime rates are very low and although very few travellers will be victims of crime, there might be some risk of petty theft (mostly pickpocketing) and areas to avoid in Sydney and Melbourne.
