Australia requires all foreign travellers to hold a visa to enter the country. The type of visa you apply for depends on your length of stay, your passport and the purpose of your travel.

Citizens of the Republic of Korea travelling to Australia for up to 3 months for tourism, visiting friends or family, or on business visits can apply for an ETA through the Australian ETA App. Download the Australian ETA app for free from the App Store (Apple) or Google Play store (Android).

If you wish to travel to Australia for other purposes or if you do not have an ETA-eligible passport, please visit the website of the Department of Home Affairs to see what types of visas are available for travel to Australia. We cannot advise you which visa to apply for. 

If you require assistance with your visa application, you may wish to contact a travel agent or a registered migration agent. 

If you have questions, you can contact the Department of Home Affairs via the Australian Immigration Enquiry Form or by telephone.
