Visa to Australia

A smooth visa to Australia application process requires a clear understanding of the step-by-step lodging procedure as well as the necessary set of the documents. Using our 15 years experience, we ensure that all your forms are in the right order and completed in accordance with the standards of the Australian High Commission in Malaysia. This minimises the possibility of visa rejection.

We offer assistance with the application process for the following categories of visa to Australia: 

Australia Visitor Visa (Subclass 600)

With this visa you can

  • visit family or friends
  • be here as a tourist, for a cruise or for any purpose except business or medical treatment

You can study or train for up to 3 months in total on this visa. But if your main reason for travelling to Australia is study, a student visa might be more appropriate.

***You can’t work with this visa.

Cruise

You will need a visa if you enter Australia during a cruise.

If your cruise is a round trip cruise, the time you spend on the cruise counts as time spent in Australia – that is, we do not consider you have left Australia. A round trip cruise will not reset your stay period on your visa.

Ask your cruise operator or travel agent if we consider your cruise to be a round trip cruise.

How long you can stay?

This is a temporary visa. 

You can stay for the period or dates specified on the visa grant letter. Australian Immigration determine the length of your visa on a case by case basis. Things they might consider when determining your stay period include:

  • how long you want to stay
  • why you want to stay in Australia

You might not be granted the length of stay you want.

Australian Immigration can grant this visa with one entry or multiple entries. If they grant you a visa with multiple entry, you can leave and re-enter Australia on the visa while it is valid. Generally they grant a stay period of 3 months, but they might grant a stay of up to 12 months in certain circumstances.

How to Apply?

Australia ETA Visa (subclass 601)

You cannot apply for an ETA online, or through an agent or airline at this time unless the application is lodged via the ETA app.

You can download the Australian ETA app for free from the Apple Store (Apple) or Google Play store (Android).

For more information, see the Australian Immigration Step by step guide.
