What is a temporary Visa?
A temporary Australian visa can be granted for holidays, temporary employment sponsored by an employer, students etc. The Visa expires after a specified date. I wouldn’t recommend illegally overstaying or you could find yourself a guest of Australia Immigration Officials in one of Australia’s immigration centers.
Electronic Travel Authorities (ETAs)
Some temporary Australia visas are granted on the basis of your passport of nationality, without ever requiring documentation to be submitted e.g. UK.
Generally an ETA only permits a stay of up to three months on the initial visit. Your travel agent should be able to advise you on obtaining an temporary Australia visa.
Australia Immigration can be complicated process so we recommend you get professional advice and assistance from MARA registered Australian Immigration Consultants or if you want help with visas contact the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.
