Non-Australian citizens or permanent residents transiting Australia to another country or passing through Australia to join a ship as crew must obtain a visa overseas before travelling to Australia. A transit visa is required even if a traveller remains on the same aircraft in the same airport. A transit visa allows the holder to enter and remain in Australia for 72 hours. There are no charges or fees for transit visas.
