Electronic Visa Application 651 Country of Residence

Hi everyone,

Am in a bit of a tricky situation. I am applying for the 651 electronic visa to visit Australia for a couple of weeks. When you're applying for this visa you have to state your country of residence + address and this is where it gets tricky.

I am a Swedish national who have been working in Singapore for 1 year. My contract has now ended and I am now in Singapore as a tourist on a social visit pass. My registered address is still in Singapore as I have not yet gone back to Sweden. In order to register my address in Sweden again I have to physically go there and register by myself.

So, what do you think I should write on current country of residence + address? My Singapore address even though I am just a tourist here right now and not a "resident" or the place where I usally reside when I am in Sweden?

Have tried calling immigration in Australia but they just tell me to fill out the application according to my best judgment.

Hope someone can help with this and perhaps give some suggestions.

Many thanks

I don't think this is a question you can get "wrong" aka, it shouldn't cause a visa refusal. If it was me, I would put Singapore since you don't live anywhere else.

Where do you reside? is the question to be answered.
