Where did you get yours? We are going to Aus in Dec and need to get a visa each, (just visiting) Travel sgent has told me to look on the internet, but as we are paying THEM £4000 should they not do it for us at a cost. What happens if you haven't got a computer or internet access.
The travel agent can do it, but you will be charged the fee for the visa, plus maybe a charge for them to do it for you. Used to work at Travelbag and we didnt charge to process a visa, maybe you can check with them and do it thru them. Im guessing you do have internet access so it doesnt matter, do it online or with a TA who wont charge you
And if that doesn't work then just use www.visabureau.com
You dont need to send your passport away. It's done automatically. I think I just took a rpint out of an e mail with me just to be on the safe side or maybe because that's what they tell you to do. I certainly didn't send my passport anywhere though.
