In order to enter the US, Australian citizens must first get an ESTA travel authorization in the form of an Australia to USA Visa. An ESTA travel authorization is not suitable for citizens of Australia who are relocating to the United States or seeking permission to work legally in the country.
The ESTA application form for Australian citizens is simple and quick to fill out. For their travel authorisation to be accepted, applicants from Australia must meet specific requirements.
How long can a Australian citizen stay in the US?
This depends on the visa you have been granted. With an ESTA, Australian citizens may only stay in the USA for up to 90 days at a time. With a B1/B2 visitor visa you may stay for up to 6 months at a time.
If applying for an ESTA visa waiver, you simply require your passport details and must complete the online application.
For full visa applications such as the B2 visitor visa, you will need the following set of documents
