okay so i may have posted this question but i am going to Oz in October but dont know when to apply for my visa!

Is it right that they start from when you apply for it, i am only getting a standard visa to allow me to enter Oz not a WHV. I think i have heard that they last 3 or 6 months and allow you to enter into that country several times!

Am i on the right track or not!

Visitors from Europe, a whole list of other countries, and the UK in particular, don't need a visa for entering New Zealand as a tourist (for up to three months).

No experience with the australian torist visa unfortunately, as I'm here on a working holiday visa. *g* Wasn't even _aware_ Australia didn't have a visa waiver until I read this question in fact.

I had a phone call about a week ago now from ebookers to book my visa for me so i thought i had it sorted, he told me that i'd have a confirmation email and i still haven't recieved anything yet. I have just emailed them!

I haven't got a clue what is going on here!
