Visitor visa (subclass 600) Frequent Traveller stream

The Frequent Traveller stream is for people who travel frequently to Australia for a short visit for tourism, visiting family or friends or for business visit purposes. Business visit purposes includes making general business or employment enquiries, negotiations or participating in a conference.

The visa might be granted for a period of up to 10 years and has a higher visa application charge than the other Visitor visa streams.
The Frequent Traveller visa commenced in December 2016 as a trial for holders of passports from the People’s Republic of China, who are applying from within China. The visa is only available online.

The visa has been introduced as a trial and therefore numbers are limited. It might be extended to other passport holders in the future.
