Australia Visa Information

01 May 2020 by News Desk

Australia Visa rules remain in place with some changes due to the coronavirus emergency.

Strict travel restrictions are in place for certain countries due to COVID-19. You should not apply for any visa until you check and comply with the latest government information (below).

If you don’t have a visa

You can’t come to Australia until you have a visa. Apply for a visa and include proof (such as your marriage certificate, your birth certificate or birth certificate for your children).

If you have a temporary visa (except for Partner and Child visa holders)

Use the enquiry form on the government website to provide further information to the Department. You should attach proof (such as your marriage certificate, evidence of your de-facto relationship such as shared finances or property, your birth certificate or birth certificate for your children). Do not travel until we advise that you can.

Partner (subclasses 100, 309, 801, 820) and Child (subclasses 101, 102, 445) visa holders can come to Australia. You do not need to request an exemption.
Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa holders can’t come to Australia at the moment.
If you are an immediate family member of either an Australian citizen or permanent resident, you may be eligible to apply for a Visitor Visa (Subclass 600).
If your visa was granted after 1 February 2020 and you are affected by the current travel restrictions, you will not be able to check your visa details and conditions using Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) until the restrictions are lifted. You should refer to your visa grant letter or check your ImmiAccount.

Australian citizen or permanent resident

All travellers arriving in Australia must undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine at designated facilities (for example, a hotel), in their port of arrival.
You can travel to Australia if you are an Australian citizen, a permanent resident, an immediate family member of an Australian citizen or permanent resident or are a New Zealand citizen usually resident in Australia. If you are an immediate family member holding a temporary visa you will need to provide us with evidence of your relationship.

Australian citizen

Australian citizens can enter Australia and, in exceptional circumstances, will be permitted to enter without a valid Australian passport. If you don’t have a valid passport, please advise airline staff that you are an Australian citizen and do not require a visa to enter Australia (even if you are a dual national). The airline will contact the Australian Border Force to verify your citizenship. It is important you get to the airport early in case of any delays. Departure from the country you are in is subject to the rules and decisions of authorities in that country.

Permanent resident

A permanent resident is someone who holds a permanent visa in Australia, including a Resident Return visa. Permanent residents must also undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine in designated facilities (for example, a hotel) in their port of arrival once they enter Australia.

New Zealand citizens usually resident in Australia

New Zealand citizens who normally reside in Australia (with a subclass 444 visa or other permanent or provisional visa) can come to Australia. You must carry proof of residency (driver’s licence or documents that show your residency). Present it at check-in. You must undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine at designated facilities (for example, a hotel), in your port of arrival.
Important: New Zealand citizens and permanent residents not living in Australia can only transit through Australia to return to New Zealand. Refer to Transiting Australia.

Immediate family of an Australian citizen or permanent resident

You are only considered to be an immediate family member if you are:
a spouse
a de facto partner
a dependent child/ren
a legal guardian.
All travellers arriving in Australia must undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine at designated facilities (for example, a hotel), in their port of arrival.
You may need to provide information to the Department before travelling to Australia.

Guardians

A guardian, in relation to a child, is a person who has responsibility for the long-term welfare of the child and has all the powers, rights and duties that are vested by law or custom in the guardian of the child, other than:
the right to have the daily care and control of the child; and
the right and responsibility to make decisions concerning the daily care and control of the child.
