Australian Tourist Visa Requirements (Online Application)
- Scan your passport’s photo page. If you have just recently renewed your passport and all your visas and stamps are in the expired passport, make sure you also scan the photo page of your old passport and label it as expired passport.
- Passport-sized photograph in plain light (or white) background. At the back of the photo, write this declaration: “This is a true photograph of your FIRST and LAST NAME ” then your signature.
- Scan both sides of the photo (front and back)
- Bank Statement – if you have an online banking account, you can save or print as pdf from there or you can screenshot and save. Makse sure you save it as it is and no edits as it can be traced if the image was edited. For passbook accounts, scan it.
- Bank Certificate – if you can get one from you bank then it is much better. As mentioned above, I did not plan to lodge my visa application so I don’t have this. Again, better if you have.
- Credit Card Statement – I submitted the latest statement. Could be better if you submit at least 3 months to show your transactions.
- Pay Slips – If you are an employee, submit a payslip for the last 3 months
- ITR or tax document – I didn’t have ot with me so I wasn’t able to submit my ITR. I submitted an explanation letter and attached my certificate of earnings from upwork.

- I also attached my Memorlial Lot Ownership/Title. Hahaha
- Scan all pages of your passport with visas, entry and exit stamps and amendments.
