Visa, Customs and Quarantine


IMPORTANT: All travellers to Australia, other than Australian and possibly New Zealand citizens, are legally required to hold a valid visa to travel to Australia. You will need to apply overseas.

Check the Department of Immigration Department of Immigration Web site to obtain binding information on Visa requirements or contact your nearest Australian Embassy or Consulate. Instead of a visa you may be able to get an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). Visa or ETA must be obtained overseas before you arrive in Australia. We believe, but cannot guarantee that the information given here is correct and up-to-date. Please check with your travel agent and/or an Australian diplomatic office as well.

Customs and Quarantine

There are strict quarantine laws which prevent you from bringing some food and other items into Australia. Check the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service Web site for more precise information.

Australian Quarantine is very strict.
