Visa Finder

The Visa Finder is intended only to be used to introduce you to basic information about potential visa options. The Visa Finder does not provide a complete summary of all the visas that may be available to you and makes no recommendations regarding visas that are appropriate for you; also, it provides no guarantee or assurance that you will be granted a visa, or a particular visa.

For most visas, applicants need to satisfy eligibility criteria in addition to any information presented or used by the Visa Finder including, but not limited to, health conditions and character conditions. The Visa Finder displays possible visa options for primary applicants only and should not be relied on to provide visa options for secondary applicants, such as immediate family members of the primary applicant. The addition of secondary applicants to your visa application may affect your eligibility to be granted a visa. The Visa Finder is not a substitute for exercising your own judgment, making your own enquiries and/or obtaining independent advice regarding your eligibility for any visa.
