Travel: Australia - Melbourne

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

We applied through agent rejected. Went to he Australian visa centre they said do manual application but takes 21 days omg. Now we applied again on eta immi.gov.au and waiting. What can I do. The application states as not enough information . What do I do it's this sat morning flight


I assume you are talking about the normal tourist visa.

If you have applied online at eta, it should be able to turn around in 3 days. Any agent with access to a GDS should be able to turn it around within a day. If rejection is due to “not enough information”, your first agent may have left out or made some mistakes in the original submission.

If you are talking about other types of visa, there probably isn’t enough time to get it done before Sat. In this case, probably wise to start talking to the airline whether you can postpone the trip or take an alternative flight.

Singaporeans holding valid passports usually get an immediate approval. So far I've applied for ETA online 3 times over the past 5 or 6 years we've all been approved almost instantaneously. Still, you never know. Good luck!

I got it approved the next day - but that’s probably due to the agent’s processing time. Didn’t run into a hitch :wink:

Probably the most exciting trip planning I’ve done:
Visa application D-5.
Trip itinerary D-3.
Hotel booking, car rental and air tickets D-2.
Pack luggage D-1 till H-6.
Change money H-4.
:evil:
