Does anyone know about the Passport requirements for entering Australia. I am visting this coming Christmas/New Year and my passport runs out in February next year. I know some countries require your passport to be valid for 6 months after you leave a country, does this apply to Australia as well?

The only information I can find is that I need a Australian ETA, other then that it says all I need is a valid passport.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm feeling generous today Gman94.

I contacted the Department of Immigration, Multicultural Affairs and Indigenous Affairs (*grumble*) - and the passport office informed me that unlike other countries which require 6 months validity on a foreign passport, Australia has no such requirement. However, they advised in the strongest possible terms that you enquire with the airline you're flying with, and also with Australia House, London on 09065 508 900 or by emailing London.cc@dfat.gov.au

You may find it easier to renew your passport before you go - you will be credited for the unused time - following quote is from the UK Passport site:

http://www.ukpa.gov.uk/passport_renewing_when.asp

"You can renew a passport up to nine months before it runs out. If you do this we will put a credit on your new passport for the unused time (in whole months) that was left on your old passport the day the new one was issued."

Obtaining the on-line ETA is very easy and quick.

When I visited Australia in 2001 I assumed that as a British passport holder I didn't need a visa... wrong! I guess QFF has friends in the immigration department...  Wink

Do Americans still need a Visa to visit Australia? I recall I had to get one back for my visit in 1989, as well as a prepaid airline ticket with an outbound flight and enough money and credit cards to pay for my stay.

I presume you hold an American passport? If so, you use an ETA to enter Australia, as opposed to a visa (what wonderful perks us allies enjoy!)

The details are on this website: http://www.eta.immi.gov.au/
