How to Apply for an Australian Visa

  • Use the Visa Finder to help you find the visa most likely to meet your specific circumstances, if you don’t already know which visa to apply for.
  • Your application may require supporting documents. Refer to the visa requirements provided under the respective visa options to help you prepare the evidence you need.
  • Lodge online using ImmiAccount


Lodging online is the fastest way to get your visa

Online lodgement using ImmiAccount is the most convenient and efficient way of lodging a visa application.

Online lodgement is available for many visa and citizenship applications, including the most common visa options for citizens of India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal.

IMPORTANT: You should apply for your visa well in advance of your intended travel date. We recommend that you do not finalise your travel arrangements until you have a valid visa to travel to Australia.
