Recommended Posts

This has been my problem ever since I have had it in mind to go to Oz on a vacation, but each site is I enter entells that the requirement for going to Oz that you have to receive an invitation later from the a friend or family In Oz, and so other requirements which I have not found much of a problem to me but this has been my main problem, due to the fact that I have had no friend or family or relatives living in Australia, please i am like trying to know if people that has no contact to the Australia not eligible to go Australia

Lots of people migrate here knowing no-one. You need to look at different types of visa's, most are dependent on your skills / profession. What job do you do? and what qualifications do you hold?

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Are you talking about migrating or coming for a holiday to Australia?  You don't make it very clear in your post.

You don't need to know anyone in Oz to go on vacation.

What country are you from?  There are a number of visit visas and for some countries and some visas you do need an invite I think. 

For a short stay visa you should be ok though.

Thanks to all of you which has attended to my query, I am really appreciating it, and secondly pardon me for not being very clear,,,, I WILL LIKE TO REPEAT IT,
I am from nigeria, and ND graduate, but I now leaving and work in UAE, as a pilot maker, relatively to carpenter. In SHARJAH UAE, I am bein paid well, I have no sponsor, I am capable of sponsoring my self out there if I manage to get in Australia, but ever since I have had an interest in Australia I have been looking at different post and comment online, but in all the site that i have gone to, I have not seeing any comment like taurism or visit to Australia and having nobody there (specifically oz) , and secondly I have had no agent to ask because I have been scammed once, SO MY QUERY IS THIS, IS ITTHAT PEOPLE THAT HAS NO RELATIVES OVER THERE HAVE NO CHANCE OF APPLYING FOR A TAURIST VISA.

You ahve already been told you do not need to know anyone in Australia in order to visit it.

is the link you need. That is the official government website.

I don't know what the likelihood of a Nigerian getting a tourist visa may be.  Immigration usually assesses applications based on whether you will comply with the conditions of the visa and leave Australia before it expires.  If Nigeria is a high risk of people overstaying visas, then it's possible your application may be refused.  You won't know until you apply, but you may want to be prepared to include evidence of your ties to your current country (job, family, assets) that would suggest you will leave Australia when your visit is done.
