Strict travel restrictions are in place for certain countries due to COVID-19.  You should not apply for any temporary visa or ETA until checking the latest information.

If you are an immediate family member of either an Australian citizen or permanent resident, you may apply for a Visitor visa (subclass 600).


From 1 July, there will be changes to the way you can bring tobacco into Australia. If you’re travelling with tobacco products, make sure you’re aware of the duty free limits.

For travellers, the duty free limit remains the same — one unopened packet of up to 25 cigarettes (or the equivalent of 25 grams of tobacco products) and one open packet.

Anything exceeding this must be declared and duty paid on the whole amount, otherwise penalties may apply.
