Visas and Citizenship

Welcome to the website of the Department of Home Affairs in Argentina. The Visa office at the Australian Embassy in Buenos Aires closed on 25 March 2019. This website contains information for clients residing in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.

Australia has a universal visa system. This means that all non-Australian citizens require a visa to travel to Australia. You need to get your visa before you travel to Australia. Whether you are visiting Australia or planning to stay for several years, you must have a valid Australian visa. 

Australian visas are issued electronically. You will not receive a label in your passport. We recommend carrying your grant letter when you travel. As your visa is linked to your passport, please notify the department if you obtain a new passport.

We do not recommend booking flights or making travel commitments until you have a valid visa to travel to Australia. The Department of Home Affairs will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by travellers who were unable to obtain a visa before their intended travel date.

Always refer to information on the Department of Home Affairs website before lodging a visa or citizenship application. Explore visa options on the department's website to help you find the visa most likely to meet your specific circumstances.

If you are unable to locate the information you require on our website, you may telephone the Global Service Centre in Australia on +61 2 6196 0196 between 9am – 5pm. International call charges apply.
