Australian Visa Application Why Are You Going ?

  1. Why are you going to Australia?  It’s best to be really clear about this before you apply.  Do you just want to go as a tourist?  Or are you planning to migrate to Australia?  Do you have an Australian fiancé or fiancée that you’re planning to marry?  Or do you just need to go there for a business trip?  There are many reasons why people might want to go to Australia and depending on what your reason is, you’ll fall into a certain visa category.  So figure out this category first and foremost and then, you can make your Australian application.
  2. Do you have enough funds for your trip?  If you’re planning on going as a tourist or on a business trip, you’ll need to show that you have enough funds to make the trip.  After all, the authorities don’t want you to get to Australia and then get stuck because you don’t have enough funds to go back.  On a tourist visa, you won’t be able to work to make money in case you run out.  So you need to make sure that you have enough funds from the beginning.
  3. Can you prove that your visit is legitimate?  It’s important to show Australian visa officials that your visit is a legitimate one.  If you’re going for a business trip, provide some business documents to show that you’re needed in Australia.  If you’re going as a tourist, provide an itinerary (although you might want to wait before you actually get the visa to invest in a plane ticket).  If you have an Australian fiancé, they will need to sponsor you to come to Australia by filling out appropriate Australia visa application forms and documentation.  In each case, you’ll need to show that your trip/move to Australia is a legitimate one.
