How To Become An Australian


If you’re thinking about going on a trip to Australia, you’re not alone. The Australian Outback is one of the most popular destinations in the world, and it’s easy to see why: with its stunning landscape and unique wildlife, Australia has something for everyone. Whether you want to hike through the rainforest or dive through coral reefs, there are plenty of ways for visitors to enjoy their time Down Under. However, if you’re not an Australian citizen (or otherwise don’t have citizenship there), traveling within Australia can be a bit tricky. You’ll need a visa and other documents before your trip starts—and after all that work? You might find yourself wishing that you could just become an Australian citizen so that these bureaucratic headaches wouldn’t stop you from exploring all of Oz’ natural wonders! But don’t worry: even if becoming an Aussie isn’t feasible right now, there are still ways for non-citizens to travel throughout Oz without too much hassle…

Find out if you need a visa

If you’re from the European Union (EU), UK or Canada, you don’t need a visa to visit Australia. If you are from New Zealand and have been living there for more than six months, then congratulations! Your passport has already got the stamp of approval from the Department of Home Affairs in Canberra.

If none of these apply to your situation then it’s time to find out if there are any other requirements that need fulfilling before applying for citizenship.

Get your documents ready

You’re going to need a few things before you can start your new life in Australia.

First, you’ll need your passport. It should be valid for at least six months after your intended stay in Australia and have at least two blank pages for visas and stamps (if applicable). You can check its validity by entering the number on the front here:

Next up is your visa! Visa requirements vary depending on what type of work you do when visiting or immigrating to Australia:

If possible, try not to book any flights until after getting approval for your visa because some airlines require proof of travel plans before allowing passengers onto their planes without a ticketed reservation

Book your flight

Once you’ve booked your flight, it’s time to start planning the rest of your trip. You’ll want to book accommodations and transportation as soon as possible so that you have plenty of time before leaving for Australia.

  • Booking accommodation can be tricky if you don’t know what kind of place or hotel style would suit your needs best. If this is your first time visiting Australia, I suggest staying somewhere central so that everything is easily accessible from where ever in Sydney or Melbourne (or whichever city) that may be located at the time when booking outbound flights back home again later on down the road!
  • Another important thing about choosing accommodation wisely: make sure there are laundry facilities available nearby! This way all those dirty clothes can be washed up before heading off into another adventure around town later on during their visit here in Sydney/Melbourne etc…

Do some research on the best way to travel around Australia

The best way to travel around Australia depends on your budget and the time you have.

You can choose from a number of different modes of transport, including:

  • Car rental – This is a great option if you want flexibility with your itinerary as it allows you to stop at any time along the way. However, it’s not cheap so make sure that this is what works best for your needs before committing yourself!
  • Bus – Buses offer an affordable option but they also tend to be slower than other forms of transport such as trains or planes (depending on which route they take). For example, if I was travelling from Sydney all the way up north towards Darwin then I would probably opt for another method because it would take days on end whereas driving myself there would only take hours at most depending on traffic conditions etcetera…

You can travel to Australia without being an Australian citizen.

You can travel to Australia without being an Australian citizen. You need a visa, passport and airline ticket to enter the country.

If you’re from one of the countries listed below and want to visit Australia for less than three months, then you don’t need any other documentation:

  • New Zealanders and British citizens can stay in Australia indefinitely on special visas without needing a visa or passport (this includes children).


If you’re looking to travel to Australia, there are a number of options available. You can get a visa and travel as an Australian citizen or permanent resident, or you can apply for a Working Holiday Visa which allows you to stay in Australia for up to 12 months. This type of visa is ideal if you want to work while travelling around the country and not have any permanent ties here (such as owning property).
