Where to Apply

Online using immiAccount

The best option to apply is online.  We are expanding our online services.

From 1 July, 2016, all international students are required to apply for their student visa online.

Australian Citizenship by Descent, Spouse visa and Resident Return visa applications can be submitted online by Indian Nationals and online submission is encouraged. 

Please see: for more details.

  • The department prefers to communicate electronically.  If visa applicants do not agree to receiving correspondence via email there will be a delay in receiving communication, including the outcome of the application.
    • To ensure the visa office can communicate with you electronically about your visa outcome and other matters, you must include an email address with your application and, when lodging online through ImmiAccount, leave the checkbox empty when responding to the question ‘The applicant does not agree to electronic communication’.
