Visa Law News

Visa requirements for Australian citizens are visa requirements imposed by other states on entry by Australian citizenswho wish to enter into their country using an Australian passport.

In 2014 holders of an Australian passport can visit 168 countries and territories visa-free or with visa on arrival, and Australia is currently ranked 7th in terms of travel freedom, ranked behind Greece (6th placing, 169 countries) but above Malaysia and Malta (8th placing, 166 countries) according to the Visa Restrictions Index.[1]

Besides visa requirements, most countries specify other requirements which preclude the entry of Australian and other citizens into their country, for example a prospective entrant has a criminal history, or health issues, evidence of sufficient funds, evidence of ticket for exit, etc.
