Australia to offer three-year visas to Indians

Australia has announced plans to implement a new three-year multiple-entry visa for Indian travellers.

The new launched visa policy on a trial basis by July 2016, the new visa will allow Indian travellers to enter Australia multiple times on the same visa, with each stay valid for up to three months. The trial applies to eligible applicants visiting Australia for tourism and business purposes.

Along with India, the new visas will be applicable for the citizens of Thailand, Vietnam and Chile.

“We welcome the tremendous interest Indians have in visiting Australia for tourism and business. With India among Australia’s nine key tourism markets, the trial will naturally drive our tourism growth from this part of the world,” said Australia’s High Commissioner to India, Harinder Sidhu.

“The trial will make it easier for Indian visitors to make repeat visits. Travellers will not need to re-apply for visa within the three-year period,” he added.

Commenting on the new initiative, Rajeev D. Kale, Thomas Cook India’s president & country head for leisure travel & MICE, said; “The three year multi-entry Australia visa is a forward-looking strategy and will effectively serve to catalyse demand for Australia, a destination that is already seeing strong uptake from Indians for leisure, in addition to b-leisure and VFR.”
