Hi everyone,

Just a quick question that I'm too lazy to find the answer to myself :

If you are just visitng Oz on a holiday visa, do you have to apply for it before you leave home or could you do it on the road - say, from New Zealand?

Hi Ev,

You're lazy indeed!

Head on to the Australian Immigration website, which will then lead you to the Electronic Travel Authority System where you can apply for the visa online.

The visa costs AUD25 and is valid for one year from the date of approval. Major credit cards accepted. Approval takes less than 30 seconds after you click on the final submit button, if you key in everything right.

Thanks Hien

So, I can do it from anywhere in the world then? Cool!

Hey, when are you off to Melbourne?

Yup, as long as you have internet access.

I will arrive in Melbourne on the 1st of November, and leaving on the 14th. Tasmania is also on the plans, which is from the 6th to the 10th, tentatively. YAY!!!

I can't wait to get away from work!
