Yes, the Australian Home Office requires all German visitors needing an Australian eVisitor visa to consider two crucial pre-application requirements before filling in the online form. Applicants must have:
- A valid German passport with an expiration date that extends at least 6 months from the date of application
- An email address where the travelers can receive updates and notifications regarding their application
If a German traveler’s passport expires in 6 months or less, they should renew it before applying for the Australia eVisitor visa.
German travelers, especially those with dual nationalities, should note that the Australian eVisitor visa is electronically connected to their passport and is not transferable. Therefore, they must travel with the same document they used when requesting the Australian eVisitor visa.
Travelers from Germany who plan on visiting Australia with their children will need to submit a separate Australian eVisitor visa application for each child.
