This holiday visa is only valid for travel and tourism purposes in Australia. You are not entitled to work in Australia. You are not allowed to study for more than 3 months.


The 6 month visa generally takes 1-2 weeks to organise however like with all visas its advisable to wait until your visa has been organised before you bok your flights. In any event Visa First will proicess all visas with immediate effect.


The required minimum of funds that you must have at least AUD6 900 – which is at about £4 000 or €4 500. If the child is travelling with you it will be good if you have at least half of the required funds for him/her.


In order to apply for a 12-month tourist visa to Australia you will have to complete the application form, provide us with a copy of your passport and a copy of a bank statement showing that you have enough funds to support your stay in the country (we’re advising our applicants when applying for 6-month tourist visa to have at least AU$ 6900 so I’d suggest to have as much funds as possible in order to get the visa granted for longer period); you will also need to provide information on your employment status; provide details on the purpose of your visit to Australia; you will need to give information for your contacts in Australia (if any) and you will need to present an Itinerary on the places you need to visit and the approximate dates.


At Visa First we do everything we can to make sure you receive the best possible service. If you feel that we have not achieved this goal we have set up a complaints handling process:

Complaints Process:
  1. Where an official complaint is received by Visa First, the company will record the nature of the complaint and issue an acknowledgement email to the client within 5 business days of receiving the complaint. The acknowledgement will provide the client with the contact name who is responsible for dealing with the complaint. The official complaint must be made by email (you may also write, although this will slow down the process), and confirm that the client wishes to enter this process. Please email your complaint to complaints@visafirst.com
  2. Visa First will investigate the complaint as swiftly as possible and where applicable, the complainant will receive a regular written update on the progress of the investigation at intervals of not more than 20 business days.
  3. Visa First will try to resolve the complaint within 40 business days of having received the complaint. If the complaint cannot be resolved within 40 business days, the Firm will write to the complainant notifying them of the anticipated timeframe for the conclusion of the investigation.
  4. Within 5 business days of the conclusion of the investigation of the complaint, Visa First will issue a resolution letter detailing the outcome of the investigation. This letter will include, if applicable, an explanation of the terms of any offer that the company is prepared to make in settlement of the complaint.
