Australia to Modernize its Visa System
In a bid to attract travellers from Asian countries, Australia needs to revamp its visa system including facilitating processing of visa applications online, citing a new research on visas by Margy Osmond, the chief executive of Tourism and Transport Forum.

She mentioned that the influx of Chinese visitors increased by 15% over the previous year and the positive visa reforms in the US and Canada witnessed their intake is surged by 23% and 30% over the same period.

The report matched up Australia’s visitor visa scheme with visa systems of major western competitors’ and revealed that the nation is moving slowly in drawing people from India, Indonesia and China.

The report suggested some reforms, which include streamlining online visa applications, making applications available in other languages including English and creating ‘fee for service’ visas to process the applications faster for those who are interested to pay more for a visit visa.

She added that the visa reforms will be affect every tourism business in Australia and said that she would take up meetings with ministers of government with regards to reforms on the visa system.
