Welcome to the website of the Visa Office of the Australian Embassy in Jordan.  We are an overseas office of the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs).

Our office manages visa and citizenship services for residents of Jordan, Syria and Iraq.

Everyone except for Australian citizens will need to obtain a visa prior to travelling to Australia.  This website provides information on visa and citizenship services provided by our office in Jordan.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A VISA?

The quickest and easiest way to apply for a visa is to apply online using ImmiAccount.  Using ImmiAccount will ensure you receive your decision faster than submitting paper applications. 

If you apply on paper, you must use the correct and current form to apply for your visa.  You must certify and copy all of your documents before submitting them with your paper application.  All forms and booklets can be downloaded as a PDF file from Applications, Forms and Booklets section.

Paper applications made by persons residing in Jordan are not accepted by the Visa Office at the Australian Embassy in Amman.  Paper applications can however be lodged through the Australian Visa Application Centre (AVAC).  For certain visa applications, you may also be directed to have biometrics taken at the AVAC.  Further information on the AVAC is available here: https://au.tlscontact.com

 
IMPORTANT INFORMATION WHEN APPLYING FOR VISAS:

Complete submissions of your application with ALL the requested documents will assist in efficient processing of your application.

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. 

Your Australian visa application could take longer if you need character or health checks (including chest x-rays), if you need to provide more information, or if your application is incomplete.

Visa applicants must not provide bogus documents or information that is false or misleading in a material particular with their visa application.

Your visa application might be refused, if you or any of the members of your family unit:

  • provide a bogus document or information that is false or misleading as part of your current visa application. 
    or
  • previously provided a bogus document or information that is false or misleading in relation to a visa that you held in the 12 months before making your current application.
 
HOW TO PAY
Payment for online applications can be made through ImmiAccount
 
If you cannot apply online AND your paper application form is being sent to an Office located inside Australia, then the preferred payment method is to pay online using ImmiAccount .  You can pay online for paper applications using the Pre-pay Paper Service option within the Manage Payments section in ImmiAccount. A copy of the receipt should be attached to your application when it is lodged with the Department.
 
Acceptable payment methods in ImmiAccount are:
  • MasterCard (including Debit MasterCard)
  • VISA (including VISA Debit Card)

TRANSLATION SERVICES 

Translation offices and related companies are entitled to charge you a fee to assist with completing your application form. Please consider if you think the sum of money you are being requested to pay to complete your application form and any other services is reasonable.

Please be wary of companies that make unrealistic claims – “Your application cannot be refused for any reason”, “If we assist with your forms, you have a higher chance of success”, “If you do not pay me this additional money, you will be refused from entering Australia forever”.
