The land of kangaroos and one of the most beautiful places in the world, Australia is visited by many thousand people every month for various purposes which include participation in an event or festival, meeting family and friends, business tour to attend meetings, travel and exploration and many more. Cities like Sydney hold special charm for the foreigners due to their beautifully designed buildings and dangerously delicious foods and deserts. A home for many and a second home to a large number of other country nationals, Australia is one of the favorite countries for tourism and vacations and never fails to satisfy and amaze the crowds which visit it. If you want to visit Australia as well and be mesmerized by the beautiful and serene country, than you need a visit visa for it. The following paragraphs will enlighten you about the method and time span and all the other details on acquiring a visit visa to Australia. Read carefully and follow all the steps mentioned and the process will seem easy and less stressful.
Before applying for an Australian visit visa one must know that there are certain categories of visit visa to Australian which are given by the Australian embassy. The time span of your stay also sometimes depends upon the category of your visit visa. So before choosing, know your category and see where you fit perfectly for touring the country and that will make the process easier.
The categories differ because many people visit for some festivals and events to attend there as an audience or even participants so there time span would be different than the ones who are visiting family or friends to spend some quality time with them. Likewise, if someone is visiting to attend a business meeting their time span of the visa would be different than the person who is visiting for tourism purposes.
The minimum and maximum time span of the visit visa of Australia is from 3 months to 12 months. After that the visa expires but within that time span you can visit as many times as you want and even stay there in Australia all this time. But after the visa expires one must come back and avoid the violation of the visa terms.
