Visa and Immigration

Australia welcomes millions of overseas visitors each year. Anyone who is not an Australian citizen needs a valid visa to enter and spend time in Australia. There are different visas for family and skilled migrants, tourists, business people, sports people, students and others.

The Australian Consulate General in Chennai does not provide any assistance with regards to Australian visas or Australian citizenship applications.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) at the Australian High Commission in New Delhi processes most visa applications and some citizenship applications for residents of India, Nepal and Bhutan. To know more visit, http://india.highcommission.gov.au/ndli/Visas_and_Migration.html.

For additional country specific information, please visit the main DIBP website, www.border.gov.au.
