Australia confirms special bilateral visa
Cricket fans travelling to Australia for attending Cricket World Cup 2015 and want to go New Zealand to attend matches will be able to travel to both countries with single visa.

Scott Morrison, Immigration Minister, has announced that allowed tourists to both countries may apply for bilateral visa for attending sporting event in early 2015.

This visa will be issued as per the Australia’s visa norms and will make the procedures efficient by allowing only genuine participants and spectators for cricket world cup.

Australian immigration department will closely work with New Zealand’s concerned department to finalize the efficient visa arrangements for this sporting event.

The minister explained that SmartGate System is available at the Australia’s international airport and it allows travelers who are having valid passport. And SmartGate is currently equipped at eight major Australian international airports.

From November 2012, SmartGate has been operational to 4 countries on both trail and permanent basis; the USA, the UK, Singapore and Switzerland. Including the New Zealand and Australia the total number of countries that have access to this technology of SmartGate is six.

Scott Morrison said that department will work towards testing, identifying and bringing more number of nationals under this SmartGate system. The department’s aim is to offer major ePassport holders to get access to self-service arrivals by end of 2015.
