When you’re overseas, you can apply for a visa under the Commonwealth Visitor and Immigration Program, or VWP, and you can come to Australia.
The VWP allows people to visit and work in Australia, as long as they’re not already in the country and have no plans to return.
But the visa application process is quite different from the Australian Citizenship process.
The Australian Citizenship system applies to people who are currently in Australia and are granted Australian citizenship.
The visa application involves applying to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, who then takes a look at your application and determines whether you should be allowed to stay in Australia.
Your visa application will need to be approved in person, and then the Australian Consulate in your country must process it.
You’ll also need to complete an online visa application form.
You will need a passport, travel documents and visa stamp for each visa application, as well as an Australian Passport Card (APC).
Once your application has been approved, you will receive a letter confirming your visa status.
This letter will contain the visa number and date of entry, and it will indicate if your visa application has received a visa number.
If your visa is approved, it will then allow you to enter the country.
But, if you haven’t received a letter from the consular office, you may still need to fill out a further application.
For more information on Australian visa rules, see Australian Citizenship page.
You can apply online through the Department for Immigration and Trade (DIAT) website or by calling 1300 622 622.

Australian passport rules for visitors to Australia When you apply for Australian citizenship, you’ll need to show you have been living in Australia for five years and are entitled to permanent residency.
If you have lived here for less than five years, you don’t need to apply for permanent residency to enter Australia.
However, you must still apply for the Australian Passports Card (APS) to enter.
You must also complete a further visa application online through DIAT.
This visa application forms out of the same document that you used for your Australian citizenship application, so you’ll have to submit a separate form to prove you’ve lived in Australia a full five years.
The APC requires you to prove that you are not currently on the Australian Customs Entry List.
If it’s not on the list, then you’ll not be able to enter without a visa.
The requirements for the APC can vary depending on where you are and what kind of immigration status you have.

The Visa Waiver If you’ve already applied for Australian Citizenship, you need to provide additional documents, such as your passport, to the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
These documents will be required to enter Australian Customs and Border protection (CBP) and the Australian Border Force (ABF) facilities, which are usually in your home country.
The documents include: passport number, date of arrival, expiry date and validity date
