Hi I'm travelling to Australia soon for 3 weeks from Ireland and was wondering do I need a visa of some sort like in the us,thank u.
Check out FAQ - VISAS and CUSTOMS over there on the right of your screen.
Apply for an eVisitor visa (free) here: www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/Find-a-visa.aspx
We applied for Australian e visitor visa for 2 week trip to visit daughter at uni in sydney leaving in 5 days time -mine came back in 48 hrs but hubby still waiting we didn't even know Brits needed visas until a friend of our daughter got stuck at airport on way to Sydney without one so my daughter reminded me to get one saying it was easy and online timescales were advising 1-2 working days.
Our tickets are booked for sunday so very nervous and not able to plan and can't get refund or change flights without huge charges costing more than the tickets cost originally.
No warning on Australia IMMI website of those delays. You Cant ring processing centre if you are not in oz and european visa centre just say 'wait and possibly rearrange tickets '
Try calling the Australian High Commission in London Carol:
You can ring them - I had to once when we had a problem with the visa, so try again....
