The Department of Immigration and Citizenship, Govt of Australia is pleased to announce the expansion of the electronic tourist visa program to citizens of Croatia and the Maldives.
From July 1, citizens of Croatia and the Maldives can apply electronically for the e676 online tourist visa using a fast, secure and convenient application process.
The online visa gives applicants the ability to check the progress of their application electronically and does not require a visa label to be placed in a passport.
Once granted, a notification is sent to the client providing details of the visa and airlines are able to confirm the visa entitlements through the Advanced Passenger Processing System.
Clients can also, if they wish, print a copy of their visa approval notification email to carry with them while travelling to Australia.
