Travelling to Australia

Immigration and visas

All travellers, except New Zealand citizens, must obtain a visa or travel authority before travelling to Australia.

Digital Passenger Declaration

All passengers arriving by air into Australia are to complete the Digital Passenger Declaration, unless they are flight crew. Passengers must be able to provide evidence that they made this declaration before boarding the aircraft.

You can start a DPD seven days before your flight to Australia, but you can only submit a DPD within 72 hours before your departure. This is because you must provide your health information and declaration within 72 hours before your flight. The DPD contains declarations that are considered to be critical health information.

It is recommended that you complete the DPD prior to arriving at the airport. It must be completed for each passenger to Australia.

Australian visa-free scam

Friday 4 November - The Australian High Commission, Suva, is aware  of a scam circulating on social media and the internet announcing visa free entry to Australia for Fiji Nationals. This is untrue.  Australia maintains a universal visa regime whereby foreign nationals are required to obtain a visa prior to travel.

To ensure people are not stopped on departure from airports, we strongly recommend that potential travellers obtain information and assistance regarding visa applications from our Australian Visa Application Centre service provider TT Services 

There have been previous incidents when scammers have targeted websites with false promises of jobs or travel to Australia. People who respond to such advertisement are then asked to pay for the Australian visa by lodging money into a bank account. No job exists and no visa application is lodged.

All Fijians should refer to the official website of the Australian High Commission for information relating to visas or future work opportunities.  Any suspected fraud should be reported to the Fiji Police Force, the Fiji Commerce Commission or the Australian High Commission, Fiji.
