Hello,

I´m new here and need some advice please.

I want to visit Australia for four weeks in March just as a tourist. So I thought the easiest is to apply for an eVisitor which I´m eligible since I have a German passport.
But here´s the issue: I live in China at the moment (total of six months until February) and then want to go directly to Australia and then back to my home country which is Germany where I also lived before and still have my apartment etc.
In the form there is a question about "Country of Residence" I would put Germany, but I´m not sure that´s right because two pages later it asks for "Residential Address" but that would be China I guess?

I´m kinda confused and would really appreciate your help!

Thanks

PS Sorry for the typo in the title!

Do you have a formal residence permit for China or are you only visiting on a tourist/business visa?

If the former, both country of residence and residence address could be in China. If the latter, then both would be in Germany. If you are in transit between the two and Germany is your long term home where you have a firm address I would probably choose the latter, but its a bit of a toss-up.

I have applied for a couple of 3rd countries for eVisitor. Two of those were during a move between two countries (neither of them my own) and though I don't remember which country I filled in (departing or arriving) it wasn't an issue. Just be consistent with Country of Residence and Residence Address.

Thanks for your advice!

So I chose Germany, even though I have a residence permit in China. I mean after all, I´m going back to Germany after my stay in Australia. The visa was granted within two minutes so I guess I´m good to go :)

Now it´s about planning the whole trip...

There is no residential location requirement for German passport holders to apply for an eVisitor, you can apply anywhere and it will normally be granted in seconds. So it doesn't matter where you live. Just enter your China address
