3. Documents needed to travel to Australia:
If you only intend to visit Australia, you will require a “Tourist Visa”. On the other hand, and depending on your country of residence, if you are in the right age bracket, you are able to apply for a WHV (Working Holiday Visa). This will enable you to live and work in Australia for a period of 12 months, renewable.
You will need a valid passport, travel insurance and a minimum amount of funds in your bank account.
