Australia launches new pilot visa programme for Indian visitors
A new pilot visa programme has been launched this month to make it easier for business and tourist visitors from India to apply for a visa by allowing them to apply online for a visa to travel to Australia.
Andrew Robb, Trade and Investment Minister said: ‘India is one of the world’s fastest growing outbound travel markets. This trial will make it easier for Indian visitors to apply for visas to travel to Australia’
The pilot programme enables Indians to make online applications under Subclass 600 as long as the visa application is made via selected travel agents across India. The Subclass 600 visa is for temporary visits to Australia for business or pleasure.
