Australian eVisitor Visa for Citizens of Spain

Electronic Travel Authorization Available

The Australia eVisitor visa for Spanish citizens is an electronic visa that can be obtained online, which allows nationals of Spain to enter Australia.

Travelers from a number of European countries, including Spain, are eligible to apply for the Australian eVisitor visa to visit Australia for short-term stays.

Spanish travelers can easily obtain the Australian eVisitor visa within a few days by submitting an online application with some basic information without having to visit an Australian embassy or consulate.

The Australian eVisitor visa is designed to provide an efficient and streamlined application process for travelers in order to make it easier for them to travel to Australia.

Traveling to Australia from Spain on an Australian Visa

The eVisitor visa for Australia permits Spanish nationals to stay in Australia for a maximum period of 3 months at a time.

It is a multiple-entry visa, allowing the holder to return to the country more than once during the course of its 12-month validity.

Spanish travelers can obtain the Australian eVisitor visa in order to travel to Australia for the following purposes:

  • Tourism
  • Business
  • Short-term studying/training opportunities (up to 3 months)

Travelers from Spain who plan to stay in Australia in the long term, including to live and/or work in the country, will need a different type of visa from an Australian embassy or consulate.

Passport Requirements for Spanish Citizens Applying for the Australian eVisitor Visa?

The Australian Home Office requires Spanish nationals to obtain an Australian visa before traveling to the country.

In order to apply for an Australian eVisitor visa, Spanish citizens will need to adhere to the following passport requirements before beginning the application process, including:

  • A valid passport issued by the Kingdom of Spain
  • The validity of the passport must extend at least 6 months from the date of application
  • At least 2 blank pages for entry/exit stamps

Travelers from Spain whose passports are set to expire in 6 months or less should consider renewing their passport before beginning the application process.

Spanish passport holders who are dual citizens, should note that the Australian eVisitor visa is electronically connected to the passport they use to apply for the visa and that only that passport can be used to enter Australia.

Spanish travelers interested in visiting Australia with their family members will need to submit a separate Australian eVisitor visa for each member of the family including each child listed on their passport.

Applying for an Australian eVisitor Visa from Spain

Citizens of Spain can apply for the Australian eVisitor visa by completing a simple online application with their personal information and passport details, including the following:

  • Full name
  • Nationality
  • Passport number
  • Passport issue and expiry dates
  • Contact email address

The online form for the Australia eVisitor visa is straightforward and takes a matter of minutes to fill out. The Spanish traveler must then submit the application and pay the processing fee. The approved visa will be received at the email address provided on the form.

What Happens if I Make an Error on My Australia eVisitor Visa Form from Spain?

It is important for Spanish travelers to ensure that the information they enter on the form is accurate to the best of their knowledge and matches the information displayed on their passport and other travel documents.

This is needed to avoid processing delays that can occur as a result of errors, missing information, or inconsistencies found on applications submitted for the Australian eVisitor visa.

Australian authorities need to verify the information submitted by applicants of the Australia eVisitor visa. However, if they are unable to do so due to errors on the application, the Spanish applicant may have their visa denied.

If this occurs, they must reapply, taking care to ensure that all information submitted is 100% accurate.

Receiving the Australian eVisitor Visa via Email

Spanish travelers that have submitted a completed Australian eVisitor visa application can expect to receive an update on the status of their pending application within 3 business days.

National holidays and weekends can impact the exact time required for processing. Additionally, high volumes of applications may cause delays. However, on average, Spanish applicants receive their visa within 3 business days of submitting their application and many are processed even sooner.

The Australia eVisitor visa will be sent to the Spanish applicant securely by email. Although the eVisitor is electronically linked to the passport registered in the application, travelers are advised to print out a copy of the visa as well.

The Australian eVisitor visa grants Spanish travelers multiple entries into the country and is valid for 12 months from the date it is issued to the traveler. Travelers have a maximum length of stay of 3 months upon each entry.
