A new long-term, multiple-entry visa will be exclusively available to Singaporeans from Jan. 1, 2018.
The visa will allow Singaporeans to make multiple visits to Australia and stay in the country for up to three months at a time over a six-year period. This saves Singaporeans the trouble of having to apply for a new long-term visa every few months.
More than 230,000 Singaporeans were granted visitor visas to Australia last year. This was 16 per cent more than the previous year. The new travel schemes have been introduced to boost tourism and business links between Singapore and Australia.
