Citizens of the Maldives will soon have access to a convenient online tourist visa for Australia, with the Australian government’s announcement that the e676 electronic tourist visa will soon be expanded into the area.
Maldivians can apply for the e676 electronic tourist visa online from 1 July. The application process is fast, secure and convenient, and gives applicants the ability to check the progress of their application electronically. The visa does not require a visa label to be placed in a passport.
A notification is sent to the client providing details of the visa and airlines are able to confirm the visa entitlements through the Advanced Passenger Processing System. Clients can also print a copy of their visa approval notification email to carry with them whilst travelling to Australia.
