We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Requirement For Applying an Australia Visitor Visa 600

Requirement For Applying an Australia Visitor Visa 600

Here is what you need to prepare before applying for an Australian Visitor Visa 600

Do you want to visit Australia with Australia Visitor Visa 600?

There are so many things you could come and see here. Maybe you have some business activities to attend to while visiting Australia? Do you have family here you wish to come to see? All of these require a type of tourist visa to enter Australia.

Would you like some help preparing for your visitor visa application?

Why don’t we go over all the different streams and subclasses for the visitor visa Australia?

Australia Visitor Visa (subclass 600)

You can visit Australia on this type of visa for:

  • a visit or for business visitor purposes
  • up to three, six, or twelve months

Currently, the base charge for the visitor visa 600 onshore or offshore ranges from AUD $135 to AUD $340.

eVisitor (subclass 651)

If you are currently the holder of a specific passport (from a country listed in the eVisitor article), you may be able to apply for a free or cheaper visa. This is the eVisitor (subclass 651) visa and is free of charge for holders of certain passports (from a country listed in the correct article).

Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) visa (subclass 601).

If your country is not listed for the free eVisitor visa (subclass 651), your country may be on the list for the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) visa (subclass 601). The service charge for the ETA is AUD $20.

Brief details of the overall requirements for an Australia visitor visa

You may be granted this visa, if you are traveling to Australia, for the purpose of:

  • visiting
  • activities involved with a business
  • to visit with family
  • to tour with a registered travel agent from the People’s Republic of China

If you are currently in Australia, you may be able to apply for the tourist stream of the visitor visa online, as long as you currently hold a valid visa that does not have the condition of 8503 (“no further stay”).

If you are currently in Australia, only certain passport holders can apply for this visa online.

If you cannot apply online, you can always lodge a paper application at your nearest Australian Immigration Office.

There are four different streams for Visitor Visa Australia (subclass 600):

  • Tourist stream
  • Business stream
  • Family-Sponsored Stream
  • organized tour from China

I recommend applying for this visa up to two weeks ahead of when you want to travel to Australia if you are from a low-risk country. If not, you should apply at least a month in advance to allow for Immigration to assess your case fully.

Document Checklist for Visitor Visa Australia subclass 600 application

Visitor visa application requirements are different from country to country. If you are currently overseas, your nearest Immigration Office will tell you exactly how and where to lodge your application and what documents you will need to provide.

You need to provide documentation to back up your application for this visa. Immigration can and will make a decision using only the information you provided when you lodged your application.

It is in your best interest to provide them with as much information and evidence as possible when you apply. Please provide certified copies of your original documents.

You won’t need to include original documents unless Immigration specifically asks for the originals.

Except for police certificates, they should be the originals. If your documents are not in English, they must be followed by an accredited English translation.

Use the below checklist for the visitor visa (includes all streams) to make sure your application is completely done.

Forms you need to fill out

  • An application form (visitor visa (subclass 600)) you have completed.

Are you receiving assistance with your visitor visa application?

If an agent or someone else gives you advice or lodges your application for you, please fill out the following form:

  • Form 956 Advice by a migration agent/exempt person of providing immigration assistance (the agent or exempt person completes the form and you must sign it).

Would you like someone else to receive correspondence from Immigration for you? Fill out the form below:

  • Form 956a Appointment or withdrawal of an authorized recipient

How much does this visitor visa cost?

If you are applying outside of Australia, the cost for the Visitor visa – for all streams is AUD $145. For someone already in Australia, for the tourist stream only, the cost for an onshore extension would be AUD $365.

ONE derland Consulting can assist you in all visitor visa 600 applications, our professional fee is ranging from AUD $850 to AUD $1,000, all depending on the complexity of your case. 

Your identity documentation

  • Certified copies of the biographical pages of the current passports or travel documents of every person included in the visitor visa application (these are the pages with the passport holder’s photo, their personal details, the issue, and expiry dates).
  • One recent passport-sized photograph (45 mm x 35 mm) of every person included in the visa application.
  • These photographs need to be of the head and shoulders ONLY against a solid color background.
  • Please write the name of the person on the back of the passport-sized photograph.
  • If you have changed your name or anyone included in your application has changed their name: please provide a certified copy of the evidence of their name change.
  • Certified copies of birth certificates for you and any other person included in the application. The birth certificates need to show the names of both parents of every person.

Character requirements for the visitor visa 600

  • If yourself or others included in the application have served in the armed forces of any country: please provide certified copies of their military service record or discharge papers.

Documents needed to show you are a genuine visitor (GTE requirement)

  • Provide evidence of enough funds, such as personal bank statements, payslips, audited accounts, taxation records, or your credit card limit.
  • If you are visiting relatives or friends, a letter of invitation from your relative or friend in Australia. If your relative or friend is paying for your visit, evidence that they have the necessary funds.
  • If you are visiting under the Tourist stream: Your itinerary for your stay in Australia.
  • Other information to show that you have an incentive and authority to return to your home country, such as:
    • a letter from your employer stating your intention to return to your job,
    • evidence of enrolment at a school, college, or university in your home country,
    • evidence of immediate family members in your home country,
    • evidence of your visa or residence status in your home country, and your right to return
    • evidence of property or other significant assets owned in your home country.

Please be aware, per my observations of our cases throughout the years, higher-risk countries need to provide stronger evidence to prove you are going to return to your home country.

For example, provide evidence of a job to return to, or maybe all of your family lives in your home country, and show assets that you wouldn’t want to leave behind.

It can be more difficult to get this visa granted if you live in a higher risk country but not impossible, let the experts help you get approved for your holiday or vacation.

Children younger than 18 years of age need the below documentation

  • If you are younger than 18 years of age: please provide evidence that every person with a legal right to choose where you live consents to your travel to Australia for this visa. If one or both parents are not going to be coming with you, you will need to provide:
  • a statutory declaration giving your parent’s permission
  • Form 1229 Consent form to grant an Australian visa to a child under the age of 18 years (125KB PDF). 
If you use this form, you must attach a certified copy of your parent’s or guardian’s government-issued identification document (such as a passport or driver’s license) with a photo of them and both of their signatures.
  • If you are not yet 18 years of age and you will be staying with someone other than your parent, legal guardian, or relative in Australia: you must have a declaration signed by the person who will be caring and responsible for you while you are in Australia.
  • Form 1257 Undertaking declaration
  • Provide evidence of enrolment at a school, college, or university.

Other things to consider when applying the Australian tourist visa

Have you tried to apply for an Australian visitor visa and were refused? There are quite a few reasons for refusal, but the most common is the GTE requirement not being met.

This doesn’t mean you don’t have options to try to apply again, you can try right after your refusal if you want, just don’t try to submit the same information again, as you will be refused again.

I have found that if you are from a high-risk country, you need to have a really strong case in order to overcome the possibility of Immigration that you may just stay in Australia.

Since this is the case, I would strongly suggest help from a Senior Migration Agent, to help you understand how to make your case stronger, as they know what Immigration is looking for when they assess applications because of the number of them these agents have done.

Our registered migration agent has been doing Australian visitor visa applications since 2009 and we would love to assist you with this.

After you having a private consultation with Indah Melindasari, we will send you a meticulously planned yet actionable migration plan to minimize the risk of your visitor visa 600 getting refused by Australian immigration.
