Travelling to Australia over the Christmas/Spring Festival Period? Apply online and apply early!
It will soon be peak time for visa applications to visit Australia during the Christmas and Spring Festival holidays.
To avoid disappointment, lodge your visa application online as early as possible – preferably 6 to 8 weeks before your intended travel date. Do NOT wait until the last minute. You can apply online now at ImmiAccount.
To help us process your application as quickly as possible, you should lodge a complete application with all supporting documents. We can make a decision using the information you provide when you lodge your application and we may not ask you for more information.
You should also identify all applicants who are travelling together by selecting the ‘Group processing’ option. For more information, see Frequently Asked Questions on Online Visa Lodgement for Groups in China.
You can check current Global Visa Processing Times on our website. Processing times are impacted each month by changes in application volumes, seasonal peaks, complex cases, and incomplete applications.
