Please note that the below information is of a general nature and visa requirements can change, so it’s always best to check with your local embassy or consulate before travelling. If you’re unsure of your visa requirements or need further help just contact us.
Visas for Australia:
You must have a valid visa to enter Australia. Most of our Oz Intro
group members get either a 12 month Working Holiday Visa or a 3 month Tourist Visa. We can organise either of these options for you. Just let us know when you book.
A Working Holiday Visa allows you to stay in Australia for up to 12 months. You are legally allowed to work with a WHV for each employer for up to 6 months, or 12 months in two different locations. Once your visa has been approved you have 12 months to use it. You must be 18-30 to get a WHV. Or 18-35 if you're from Canada or the Republic of Ireland.
You can apply for a 2nd WHV if you complete 88 days of seasonal work in regional Australia. We'll give you lots more info and help with 2nd year visas during Oz Intro.
Visas for Thailand:
Most nationalities including the UK, Europe, Australia, NZ, Canada, USA, Scandinavia and Brazil do not require a visa for Thailand. As long as you have a passport with at least 6 months validity then you will receive a 30-day visa exemption on arrival. However some nationalities (e.g. Colombian, Mexican) must apply for their visa beforehand.
Visas for Bali:
Most nationalities will receive a 30-day visa on arrival in Bali. This visa is free for most nationalities and costs approximately $35USD for others. Some nationalities (e.g. Colombian) must apply for their visa beforehand.
Visas for Vietnam:
Depending on your nationality and how long you’re planning on staying in Vietnam there are a few options:
- Some nationalities including the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway can enter Vietnam without a visa for a maximum of 15 days. If you want to stay longer than 15 days then you can apply for a 30-day visa online here: https://evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/
- If you’re not from one of the countries listed above then you’ll need to apply for a one month visa at a Vietnamese Consulate nearest to you before you arrive. This requires submitting an application form along with your passport, passport photos and paying a fee which starts at $60USD for a single entry one month visa. Please allow at least 2 weeks processing time for this visa.
- Apply for a Visa Invitation Letter that is emailed to you, which you then print and bring with you to Vietnam. This letter allows you to fly into Vietnam and pick up your Visa on Arrival (VOA) at the airport. This VOA is for one month and is at a cost of $25USD for a single entry and $50USD for a multiple entry and needs to be paid in USD cash on arrival in Vietnam. There are a variety of websites that will provide you this Visa Invitation letter such as www.myvietnamvisa.com. They will require you to submit an online application form and pay a fee of approx. $20USD. Please allow at least 4-5 working days processing time for the Visa Invitation Letter. A VOA is not available to those arriving into Vietnam overland. If you plan on arriving overland you’ll need to go with Option 1 or 2.
