The state of Australia has a variety of visas available depending on the traveler’s needs.
Every visa type varies in terms of the purpose of your visit, how long you are going to stay in Australia, as well as the passport you hold.
Australia offers two types of electronic visas – ETA and eVisitor Visa. It is a traveler’s nationality that determines the type of visa they should obtain.
Here are the types of Australian visas that any Slovenian citizen is eligible to apply for.
eVisitor Visa (Subclass 651)
A Slovenian citizen holding a valid Australian eVisitor Visa is allowed to visit Australia numerous times throughout a one-year validity period and stay in the country for up to 3 months upon every visit.
eVisitor can be used for the purpose of tourism, business, or transit. Its holder can use it to perform all kinds of leisure activities, including family and friend reunions, vacationing, sightseeing, and others alike. Moreover, it is permitted to participate in different types of business meetings and events or handle business affairs in Australia with an eVisitor Visa.
Last but not least, eVisitor enables transiting through Australia on your way to another travel destination.
The only difference between the eVisitor Visa and ETA is the list of eligible countries. Both electronic travel authorizations are issued for the same traveling purposes, remain valid for the same period of time, and enable numerous 3-month stays in Australia.
Documents required for Australian online visa application are the same, no matter whether you apply for ETA or the eVisitor Visa. The only document necessary to successfully submit an online application form is a valid passport.
Please, however, bear in mind that your Slovenian passport cannot expire for the min. of 6 months from your intended arrival date in Australia.
You should also know that your eVistior Visa will be automatically linked to your passport once approved. You can save its digital copy on your mobile device and/or print it out.
During border control in Australia, officials may ask you to show your valid passport. This way, they will also check whether you are a holder of a valid Australian visa.
Every Slovenian applicant with the purpose of short-term studies in Australia can apply for an eVisitor Visa.
Apart from business, leisure, or transit purposes, eVisitor also covers study purposes. However, its holder can study or train for a maximum of 3 months in Australia.
If you wish to study in Australia full-time, you should best consider applying for a student visa subclass 500.
As a holder of a student visa, you can participate in a study course, travel in and out of Australia, and work temporarily unlimited hours in whatever sector.
A visa subclass 500 allows studying in Australia for up to 5 years. The length and type of study course determine the exact duration of time for which the visa is granted.
Australia has implemented a program called the “Working Holiday Program” that inspires cultural exchange and closer links between various selected countries in the world.
This permits young people between 18-30 years to be granted a few extra months of holiday accompanied by temporary job employment.
Any Slovenian national may apply for a (Subclass 462) Work and Holiday visa to take up employment in Australia and combine it with traveling and exploring the country’s tourist attractions.
