Hey hows it going? Latvia here

Hey there.

Me and my girlfriend (English-Latvian) are wanting to move to sunny Australia so we are hoping that we can find some answers to our Million + 1 questions instead of going round in circles and hitting a brick wall at the end with all these immigration sites.

The short of it is that we want to go as tourists check the place out first and then apply for self employed visa whilst there if possible.

Anyways Catch you all later and take care aye.

Chris & Ilze

Both UK and Latvia as EU members will mean passport holders are eligible for free eVisas for three months or you can do the ETAs that give a 12 months validity but you can only stay for three months at a time before leaving for another country.

Do that and quite likely you could be scrutinised re your finances and reasons.
For a visa that will enable you to work you'll need to look at your options there, links on our sticky thread #4 in Visas and Immigration section.

As one from the UK, if young enough you will be eligible for a WHV and you could also check Immigration New Zealand if interested and see if Latvians are eligible for a WHV there.
