The e-Visitor Australia is an electronic Authorization issued by the Australian government to European travelers, planning to visit Australia for tourism or business purposes. It is valid for 12 months and allows multiple entries for stay up to 90 days at a time. For the majority of e-Visitor applications, the Approval is received by email within 24 hours. Some requests require a longer processing time. We, therefore, recommend that you apply at least 3 days before the planned travel date.
