Getting Australian Visa is so much easier than US Visa, no interview is required so there’s no long wait for schedule.
You just need to create an account, choose the visa type you need and fill up the form on this website https://online.immi.gov.au/lusc/login
Submit all the travel documents that can support your travel such as bank statements, bank certificates, business documents, payslips, and other approved visas. Visa fee is 150aud.
Depending on the visa validity that was granted, you can stay up to 12 months.
Processing can take up to 7 days to 35 days.
After submitting application form, you will be needing to set an appointment for your biometrics on VFS Appointment System. Once you schedule an appointment your application will be available till your appointment date.
My appointment for biometrics was 7 days after submitting my application because of the holidays and weekends. VFS is operating during normal business hours.
Biometrics for Australian Visa has a lot of open and available slots. VFS will submit your application after your biometrics and you just need to wait for embassy’s email for the result.
I got my Australian Visa in 3 days after submitting my biometrics, it was valid for one year and multiple entries.
I highly suggest to earn and save before applying Australian Visa, because it’s easy to be granted if you can show you can support yourself to visit and stay in Australia.
