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 Department of Home Affairs 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 Home Affairs website for further information.
Please make sure you familiarize yourself with the information on the visa subclass you are applying for.
The different categories that are catered to are:
Once you know the visa type you need to apply for, please read all relevant information to that category which includes its Visa Fees, VFS Service Charges, 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 nearest Australian Visa Application Centre or by downloading the forms from Applications and Forms.
Once all requirements corresponding to the visa subclass under which they wish to lodge their application are fulfilled, you are ready to apply for your visa to Australia.
Please note - VFS Global employees can only 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.
