Unless you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen, you will need an Australia Visa to enter the country. Citizens of 45 eligible countries can apply for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) or an E-Visitor visa online for business or short-term tourism purposes. For longer stays and similar work, nationals of other countries can apply for Australia Visitor Visa through the nearest Australian embassy or consulate. All applicants, regardless of age, must obtain a visa before departing from their home country. The Department of Home Affairs also allows some Australia visa applications to be submitted online through their website.
