Australian Tourist Visa (aka Visitor Visa)
Need a tourist visa to Australia from the Philippines? Australian tourist visa, also known as Visitor Visa. Commonly called “holiday visas” too, travel visas, visa 600’s, or very often “Just a simple tourist visa”. Well, actually they are not a simple visa application as many imagine, although many assume otherwise that such a visa application will be a mere formality (and are shocked when it’s refused!)
Anyone who is not an Australian Citizen requires a visa to enter Australia. No visa, no entry. This especially applies to tourist visa applications. And Australian tourist visas, because many believe they are easy and quick, are the preferred choice of those dishonest and non-genuine visa applicants who intend to overstay in Australia to work illegally on the black market. So if you ARE a genuine visitor visa applicant, you need to prove that you are NOT intending to overstay and breach visa conditions!
Successfully getting a tourist visa from Philippines to Australia
Refusal of tourist visa applications to Australia from the Philippines and other less-affluent countries is surprisingly common. There are a lot of scams and clever schemes designed to “trick” the Embassy, often sadly encouraged by Filipino travel agents or by well-meaning family and friends, or from the various online advice forums and Facebook groups. Fortunately Down Under Visa know all of the urban myths and are familiar with all the dreadful advice about what to say and what visitor visa requirements are supposedly necessary, and we can keep you on the straight-and-narrow path to an honest tourist visa grant.

But please ask us, and be assured of an honest appraisal of your case.
