Visa Requirements

Thinking of travelling overseas but unsure if you require a visa or questioning how long you can stay there without one. Here is a quick list you might find helpful.

Something that is often overlooked before heading off on your exciting adventure is checking what's needed to Enter/Pass through a country.

Before travelling to any country it is very important to check what documents, restrictions and regulations they might have. Whether it be a visa (to be organised by the embassy within your home country) an ETA (electronic travel authority) an ESTA (electronic system for travel authorisation - most commonly needed to enter the USA) a VOA (visa on arrival) and in some cases proof of a return/onward ticket.

Organizing a visa in your home country can sometimes be a time consuming ordeal. Often taking 2-6 weeks to be processed and if sent away to one of the bigger cities (BNE, MEL, SYD, PER) you've got to take into account time to be received by post. Don't leave anything to last minute.

If where you're going requires a VOA - don't forget to get updated passport photos before leaving your home country. Keep in mind passport photos are only valid for 6 months.

Before entering America (and now Canada) you will need to complete an online application form to obtain an ESTA (which will cost you around $14 - and must be paid via a credit card prior to departure) Once you complete the online form you will receive an emailed copy of your travel authority. If you do not complete this form before arriving at the airport you may be denied check-in for your international flight as your passport will show "Not OK to board".

As a general rule, passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally. Most countries will not allow a traveler to enter their country unless the passport  is set to expire at least six months after the final day of travel.
