Query on eVisitor - Business

Hi all,

As you may all be aware, EU citizens are now able to apply an eVisitor visa for visiting Australia, which is the same as ETA but eVisitor is for EU countries.


I have some questions about the eVisitor:

1. Does anyone know if the eVisitor approval system is automated?


2. If you applied for a Business eVisitor (not a Tourist eVisitor) are you allowed to attend job interviews with prospective employers who may sponsor the chosen candidate for a 457 work visa? Obviously you will not do any work or receive any income until the 457 visa is granted.


3. If I am Aussie citizen and my British partner comes to Australia on a Business eVisitor, can we still lodge a de-facto spouse visa application whilst he is here on the 3-month Business eVisitor or are his activities strictly limited to business only?


Appreciate any information on this.

Hi Lesley


Whilst he is on the subclass 656 eVisitor visa, your OH will be able to:


  • Loaf on the beach and/or go sight-seeing
  • Go to job interviews
  • Apply for his de facto partner visa.


Best wishes
