Israelis now Eligible for Australian Visitor Visa Online Application

It is now much easier for Israeli citizens to visit Australia thanks to an immigration change made by the new Federal government to allow Israelis to apply for a visitor visa online.

From 14 November 2013, Israeli citizens will have online access to visas for short-term visits to Australia, according to Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash.
With the addition of Israel to the list of eligible countries for electronic lodgement of visitor (subclass 600) visa applications, Israelis have joined 72 other nationalities in benefiting from the ability to apply online for the visa category. 

"For people seeking to visit Australia as tourists, for business visitor activities or to visit friends or family, the subclass 600 visitor visa is one of the most popular options, with grants in the tourist [non-electronic travel authority] category increasing about 14 per cent in 2012-13," said Senator Cash. 

"Citizens of Israel will find the process for applying for a visitor visa for travel to Australia faster than ever. Online access to these visas is being progressively expanded to all countries," he added.
