Do Italian Citizens Need a Visa for Australia?

Travelers from Italy are required to obtain an Australian visa before traveling to Australia. Italian travelers can apply for the Australian eVisitor visa if they plan to travel for the purposes of tourism or business to the country.

The Australian eVisitor visa for Italians is appropriate for short-term visits to the country not exceeding 3 months at a time. Travelers from Italy are also allowed to take up studying/training opportunities while visiting Australia on the Australian eVisitor visa, as long as the duration of their studies/training doesn’t exceed the maximum length of stay listed on the visa.

Before beginning the application process for the Australian eVisitor visa, Italian citizens should have:

  • A valid email address to receive notifications about their pending application
  • A valid Italian passport with a validity of at least 6 months from the time of application

Italian travelers should note that the Australian eVisitor visa is electronically linked to the passport which is used to apply for the visa. Therefore, it is necessary for travelers from Italy to use the same passport to travel to Australia otherwise they will face the possibility of being denied entry.

Once the passport linked to the eVisitor expires, It will be necessary to submit a new eVisitor application to continue to travel to Australia from Italy.

For Italian travelers who plan to visit Australia with their children, it is necessary to apply for and obtain an Australian eVisitor visa for each child that will be traveling alongside a parent.
