Visas and migration

The Australian Embassy in Brussels, Belgium does not process visa or citizenship applications. For clients resident in Belgium or Luxembourg visa processing is undertaken electronically through the online ‘eVisa’ service, or by processing centres in Australia. If you have a visa or citizenship enquiry please visit the website of the Department of Home Affairs and/or the Global Service Centre.

You should not book flights or make travel commitments until you have a visa to travel to Australia. The department will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by clients whose visa application was finalised later than expected or where an application is unsuccessful.

Electronic Travel Authority (ETA)

If you are a Belgium or Luxembourg passport holder, you can apply for an Australian Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) using the AustralianETA app. An ETA allows you to visit Australia as often as you would like within a 12-month period, and stay up to 3 months each time.

To apply for an Australian ETA, use the AustralianETA app available from the Apple Store or Google Play.

For help using the app, the Australian Department of Home Affairs’ website has a step-by-step guide as well as instructional videos (listed under Step 1).

Further information is available on the Department of Home Affairs’ ETA webpage.


If you are unable to use the AustralianETA app, you can explore other visa options using the Visa Finder webpage.

European passport holders may be eligible for an eVisitor (subclass 651).


Whether you are visiting Australia for a short period of time or planning to migrate, you must have a valid Australian visa.
