Ok now I am confused! I am off to Oz in Sept this year and am not planning on working at all.

I have just gone through the process of completing an Assessment Form online for a Long Stay Holiday Visa through for Oz. It asks you to fill out a form for a call back which to me, may as well be a full application as it wants so much info. I've gotton to the end and it's then asking for payment. I have left it in the hope I get the requested call back first.

Has anyone used this site, is it the one to go through to get a LSH Visa? Is there an easier way?

All help welcome!!

Cheers guys

Hmm, why don't you just use the official Australian Government's Immigration site? I am pretty sure you are after the Long Stay Tourist visa (up to 6 months stay (sometimes 12) and no work allowed). I've never heard of the other site, but chances are they are going to charge you a fee for filing your visa application for you. I applied for this visa a couple of years ago and had approval within a week. It's pretty easy and you're guaranteed to be at the right place.

If you are staying for under 3 months, just apply for the ETA by the way. Full list of tourist visas here.

Hi Sam I Am

Thank you!!! There are so many websites that you can get it through and most look official!! This one was advertised as 'the' website to apply for all visas through on a similar website to this.

Thanks for the advice though, I shall apply later and fingers crossed!!
