Traveling As An Australian Citizen

Below I will outline some basic information on Visa's needed to travel each country.  Make sure you do additional research if you are looking to work or stay in these countries for additional time.  You can also click on the country name which will bring you to their immigration website. 

United States

Traveling to the United States is not very difficult with an Australian Passport.  For the most part, you can get into the country as a tourist as long as you have a passport and proof that you're leaving within 90 days.  You can find a full list of requirements here.


Schengen Countries 

The Schengen makes up many of the countries in Europe.  Click Here to see which countries are included in the Schengen.  Australians are allowed to travel these countries for a total of 90 days within 180.  After the 180 days are up the Visa will reset.  Please note that just because a country is within the Schengen doesn't means it's part of the European Union.  These are two separate bodies and should not be confused during your travels.


Australian citizens do not need a visa to visit Canada.  For additional travel information, please visit the Canadian Governments website here.
