How to get an Australian visa online
Having visited every country in the world I can tell you that without question one of the most stressful things about travel are visa applications. Don’t get too put off by that statement because most visas are super simple and straight forward to get, but when they’re difficult they’re really difficult. I’ve spent countless hours in embassies around the world trying to gain access to the next country on my list – it’s all been worth it, I just wish visa applications were easier and a lot less stressful.
The type of passport you have will make the process easier in some countries. My fiancee has a Thai passport so I know how difficult it can be to get visas because when we visit Europe there are lots of hoops to jump through. SO why can’t they just make it easy for us? Well, I think I’ve found some people are trying and succeeding to do just that.
We’re heading to Australia so I’ve been going through the visa process for us. Thankfully this time there’s been no hours of research, trawling through info on the internet or standing around wasting hours in long queues. This is all because I hoped on the Byevisa portal. These guys have made is SO easy! I didn’t have to print of tons of forms to fill in, check the opening hours of the closest embassy and then book an appointment – I could do it all online from my sofa. I’m not the most patient person when it comes to applying for things online but this was a breeze and I got the travel visa delivered straight into my email inbox.
Here are a few more details about how the whole process worked.
- You can get your visa online to Australia – plus they also have 60 other countries on their platform too!
- You only fill in a few simple forms and the service does all the applying for you.
- It was easy for me to take a look at how the application was doing by logging into the site and seeing if the status had been updated.
- I had loads of time to plan my trip without the visa stressing me out.
If you think that over 5 and a half million people apply for a visa each year to visit Australia you don’t want to be joining the queues with them. This new online service is going to save a lot of paper, stress and time!
