Australian visa for Swiss Citizens

Since 2008, an Australian visa for Swiss citizens can be obtained in a speedy and effortless way – by applying online.

The procedure is completed in several clicks. Swiss nationals should just provide the necessary information to fill out the form, then make the online payment (49 Euro-fee), and, finally, check the email address for the approved entry document.

There is no need even to make a hard copy, as it is connected to the applicant's passport. A passport is the only required document and must not expire for a minimum of 6 months from the intended date of arrival in Australia.

An Australian eVisa allows Swiss to reenter the country an unlimited amount of times during the one-year validity period, and stay for up to 90 days (3 months) per each stay.

It's best to apply at least 72 working hours in advance. If you submit an application beforehand, you'll surely get the approval on time and won't experience issues at border control.

Fees and processing time of Australian eVisa for Swiss citizens

The online visa cost

How long are Swiss nationals allowed to stay in Australia with an eVisa?

An Australian eVisa is a multiple-entry permit, so Swiss citizens can reenter Australia as many times as they want to.

For each visit, an Australian visa holder can stay for a maximum of 90 days (3 months).

If there is a need to stay for a more extended period, a person can leave the territory of Australia for 3 days (or more) and return for another 90 days. This is possible only if the visa hasn't expired – an online visa to Australia stays valid for one year (12 months).

What do citizens of Switzerland need to apply for an Australian electronic visa?

Required documents

The only document Swiss citizens need to apply for an Australian ETA is a passport. It must be effective for a minimum period of 6 months (180 days) from the planned date of arrival in Australia.

Note that the eVisa to Australia becomes invalid:

  • if your passport expires
  • if your passport gets lost
  • If the passport data has changed (for example, a person changed their name or surname).

Technical requirements

As the application process goes online, you need a functioning device with a stable internet connection (Wi-Fi, mobile or hardwired) and financial means to pay online.

The approved Australian ETA is sent to the applicant's email address, therefore, it is essential for the account to be active and accessible. Otherwise, you'll experience issues receiving your visa.
