Spring Festival travel reminders

If you are planning to travel during the Spring Festival holidays, we recommend that you check your visa details carefully before you depart.  If your visa details are incorrect, you may not be able to travel to Australia or you may experience delays at the airport.

You can tell us if your passport or your personal details have changed online through your ImmiAccount.  If you are unable to update online, refer to Changes in your situation for details on how to notify us.

If you need to travel urgently, and have not yet applied for a visa, you may consider using the Fast Track option.  This is a premium service providing priority processing to certain Visitor visa (subclass 600) applicants and is subject to an additional fee.  You can select this option in ImmiAccount when you lodge your application.  We try to process fast-tracked applications within 2 business days.

Please note that the Australian Visa Offices in China will soon be closed for Spring Festival (refer to Australian Embassy Public Holiday closure dates).  We will not respond to any enquiries or process any visa applications (including fast-tracked visa applications), however you can still use our online services during this time.
