KNOW YOUR VISA TYPE
Before applying for your visa to Australia, applicants should decide the visa subclass under which they wish to lodge their visa application.
Applicants can use the DIBP tool Find a Visa which will help them find information on visa options that meet their specific requirements.
Please note that not all visas are included in 'Find a Visa'. If you are unsure of which visa to choose, you can also visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website for further information .
Please make sure you familiarize yourself with the information on the visa subclass you are applying for.
Once you know the visa type you need to apply for, please read all relevant information to that category which includes its Visa Fees, Documents Required, Photo Specifications and Processing Time along with the Visa Application Form within that category.
Applicants should read all instructions carefully and then fill in the Visa Application Form. Applicants can also get the visa application form by visiting the Australian Visa Application Centre (AVAC) or by downloading the forms from Applications and Forms.
Please note - VFS Global employees can provide you with information and application forms for Australian visas, but they are not able to provide you with advice regarding which visa you should apply for.
