Find detailed visa information

Each visa has an associated factsheet, which brings together much of the visa information in one place. Visa factsheets are designed for expert users such as immigration advisers and lawyers.

How to find visa factsheets

  1. You can access a factsheet directly from the ‘Find a visa factsheet’ search field found in the footer on each page.
  2. Simply start to type a visa name or key word such as 'work' or 'skill' and after 3 letters it will match your input.
  3. Select the visa you would like to view and wait for the visa to display.

Overview tab

  • Overview includes a stats column – this will display a range of predefined data field such as duration, age range & quota.
  • With this visa you can – A set of 3-4 short bullet points highlighting the key things the chosen visa allows the user to do.
  • Things to note – Up to 4 short bullet points that help set expectations early on or highlight key things the user should be aware of when applying for the chosen visa.

Criteria tab

The relevant criteria table, along with evidence information, is displayed for the selected visa. If relevant, a points indicator will also display for the selected visa.

Process tab

The relevant process information is displayed for the selected visa. This includes visa processing timeframes.

Fees & receiving centre tab

The relevant fee and receiving centre information is displayed for the selected visa.

Conditions tab

The relevant visa conditions are displayed for the selected visa.

Employers tab

If relevant, employer obligations & process details for employers will be displayed for the selected visa. 

Filters to customise information

Expert users may wish to see only the generic information displayed (which is the default view). But if a user selects some options from the dropdowns and click customise, the details throughout the visa factsheet will be filtered accordingly.

Example one

If you choose in filter 3 that the person you had in mind was not including anyone on their application, then the 'family' criteria would not show for that result.

Example two

If 'China' is selected from the passport filter, then there may be 'tips' within the criteria area that are specific to Chinese citizens and you will also see Chinese specific documents in the process & fees tab.

Note: for fees and process to display you do need to fill in location and passport fields.
