To visit Australia, you must first apply for a visa. In addition to the embassy in Moscow, Australian consulates are located in Vladivostok and St. Petersburg. It is worth knowing that the government of this country puts forward quite strict requirements for paperwork. In addition to the quality of the information provided, the candidate for a visa is assessed according to other criteria, such as “visa history”, assessment of the risk of illegal immigration and so on. The visa fee is 130 AUD.

It should be borne in mind that a notarized translation of an accredited translator must be attached to all Russian-language documents on a mandatory basis. Without this, they are not accepted.
