Temporary short-stay visas
There are several types of short stay visas that allow individuals to visit Australia temporarily for a specific purpose, such as tourism, visiting friends or family, business, or to participate in events or activities. These visas are also known as visitor visas.
One example of a short stay visa for Australia is the Temporary Work (Short Stay Activity) visa (Subclass 400). This visa is for people who want to come to Australia to do short-term, highly specialized, non-ongoing work.
To apply for a Temporary Work (Short Stay Activity) visa, individuals must meet certain eligibility criteria and may be required to provide evidence of their purpose for visit, their financial capacity to support themselves during their stay, and their plans for accommodation and return travel. This visa is typically valid for up to three months.
