We Singaporeans can’t get enough of Australia. There are many of us studying in Australia, and thousands of us want to travel. They consider Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane to visit and enjoy, but in actuality, there are many more holiday destinations there than Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney. There are a lot more places to add to your to-visit list, but before you read about these destinations, you have to learn what things you need to travel to Australia.
Things You Required
Without having a valid visa, one cannot move to Australia. In 1996, Australia had started the electronic visa program. This visa is available to many nationalities, including Singaporean, and this allows you to stay for ninety days.
Today different companies are providing Australian VISA for Singaporean. One can even apply online as it has made things a lot simpler and easier for Singaporeans. For this, you have to provide a valid passport and other documents.
Destinations to Add to Your to- visit List
