My husband and I will be flying from Auckland to San Francisco in mid December with a layover in Sydney. Our plane lands at 1015am and leaves at 6pm. We are flying Qantas so I think our bags will be moved through. My questions are:
1. What is there to see in this timeframe? Just a short trip to the opera house or is there a small tour? Recommendations please.
2. What is the Visa situation - do we get the ETA visa or the transit visa subclass 771. It appears the transit visa is free, but you have to fill out a form and possibly a medical evaluation? How does this work? And the ETA is $20 AUD per person, all online and no medical needed.
Thanks for the advice and recommendations!
