Australian Visa for Dutch Citizens
An electronic visa to Australia comes in two types depending on the applicant's nationality - the Australian eVisitor or ETA.
The Australian eVisitor is the one that citizens of the Netherlands can apply for as it is dedicated to all Europeans.
eVisitor functions as an entry authorization allowing, a.o. the Netherlanders to enter Australia multiple times.
Foreigners who are willing to make a business trip or leisure travel need to submit an online visa application. The Netherlands' citizens qualify for an eVisitor visa that simply serves as an electronic equivalent of a regular Australian visa.
The application process is simple and straightforward and can be completed entirely online within a couple of minutes using a working electronic device, e.g., smartphone or tablet.
It's recommended to apply at least 3 business days before the planned journey to obtain the e-visa on time!
How to apply for an eVisitor visa from the Netherlands?
First of all, prepare your Dutch passport and make sure it won't expire at least 6 months ahead.
Filling the application form shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes.
You will be asked to enter some of your personal details, information on your intended trip, and i.a. passport number.
It is also necessary to provide the correct e-mail address that you systematically use.
In the next step, you will have to pay a visa fee. Our system accepts most of the payment cards.
Your application will be verified by our consultants and then sent to the Australian government that approves and issues your evisitor visa.
Don't leave your visa application process at the last minute, and apply online a few days before your departure!
Australian eVisitor processing time and fees for Dutch citizens
The processing time depends on a few factors like the correctness of your data entered in the online form, application time, and the Immigration Service's approval.
To maximize your chances for your evisitor visa to be approved as soon as possible, don't forget to check your data twice provided in an online form.
Moreover, remember that making applications around non-working days can extend your waiting period.
On average, our applicants receive an eVisitor visa within maximally 72 hours, but remember that you should consider only business days.
However, it's quite frequent that applications are processed even on the same day. Don't be surprised if you obtain your electronic visa within a few hours!
All Dutch applying for an evisitor visa are obliged to pay a fee which is 49 EUR.
How long can citizens of the Netherlands stay in Australia with eVisitor?
eVisitor is valid for 12 months from the issuance date, and its holder can cross the Australian borders many times, whereas a single allowed stay cannot be longer than 3 months.
Citizens of the Netherlands who would like to stay in Australia longer can apply for a visitor visa instead of an evisitor. This option allows travelers to stay for up to 1 year.
Those who are already holders of evisitor visas can leave the country for min. 3 days and then go back and explore Australia for another 90 days as long as their online visa is still valid.
Requirements for an Australian eVisitor from the Netherlands
You don't have to worry if you meet evisitor visa requirements. All citizens of the Netherlands have to be just holders of valid Dutch passports, be active users of the e-mail address provided in their online visa request, and pay a visa fee.
Please note that you must obtain individual visas for every child or travel companion when traveling with your family members being citizens of the Netherlands.
