How to determine the right Australian visa for you

  • Sharebar

It can be said that Australia has a highly structured visa application system; however, this does not mean that the process for lodging a visa application is always overly complex.

To assist applicants to determine the most appropriate visa National Visas has developed an online assessment based on the Department of Immigration and Citizenship ‘Visa Wizard’ launched in September 2008. The visa assessment is an online questionnaire that helps applicants to identify the right type of visa for their specific circumstance. It is important to note, however, that the assessment only includes the most common types of visas out of the many.

Fortunately, if the assessment is unable to provide you with the information you need, National Visas can assist applicants determine the best visa type applicable to their situation using alternative services.

So, how can National Visas help to identify what visa is right for you?

The first step involves you identifying your reasons for coming to Australia. The first question asks you to tell National Visas what you want to do while you are in Australia:

Do you want to . . .

  • travel to Australia for a holiday or business trip?
  • come to Australia on a working holiday?
  • study in Australia?
  • live and work in Australia?
  • employ an overseas worker?
  • live with your partner in Australia?
  • join your children in Australia?
  • own or develop a business in Australia?
  • live in retirement in Australia?

What should you do next?

If you have answered yes to one of the above questions, then National Visas guides you through the next phase by asking you a few more particular questions regarding the type of visa initially applicable to your situation. For instance, if you seek to apply for a partner visa, an agent from National Visas needs to know how long you have lived or been living with your partner. Other areas that require information from the applicant include the various health and character requirements.

Remember that each visa type has a different set of questions that must be answered, and eligibility depends on these answers. However, in case you are not qualified for the visa you initially want, National Visas provides other visa service options that may be appropriate to your situation.

National Visas agents can also provide you with relevant information on the following depending on the type of visa you initially wish to apply for:
