Australia announces online Visa application facility for Indians
Melbourne: The Australian government on Monday announced that Indian nationals can apply for a visitor visa online starting July 1.
Australia’s Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Alex Hawke, said the online application option would make applying for the country’s visitor visas easier and enhance the experience for Indians.
There has been a significant increase in demand for Australian visas in India with the rising popularity of Australia as a holiday destination, an official statement said.
In the first four months of 2017, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection granted more than 65,000 visitor visas to Indian nationals.
