Tourist Visa

Hi All,

Is it possible to get more than a year for a tourist visa like that in the states?

Or is it really just the 3 months max stay multiple entry 1 year tourist visa?
Is this a money making scheme? Because a tourist will probably just visit a country once a year for holidays unless it's for business meetings and other company related travel.

I just don't see the point of sending requirements over and over. I used to have a 10 year tourist visa to the US. The duration depends on whether the consulate/embassy thinks you are a legit tourist. That's why some are given single entry and multiple entry 5 years and 10 years tourist Why is it not like that here in Oz? Or is it like that as well?

5 & 10 year tourist visas in the US?, really!
But nevertheless, we are like most other countries and you will find details in the tourist visa section of Immi site.

Yup, that's what i think is the point of multiple entry tourist visa. US even granted before I think lifetime tourist visa before they got more strict with it. Of course, not everyone gets that but now it's no longer granted.

What I only see on the tourist visa section is a max 3 months for normal tourist and maybe a year for special reasons like visiting family and staying with them to help out with baby or related.

I don't see a multiple years valid tourist visa. Hopefully someone else who have experienced tourist visas can give some info.

I know that Aussies can come and go to the US before. Now I think there's something equivalent to an e-visa or something.

I do not really know what you are on about for Visa Options - Tourists - Visitors - Visas & Immigration does use three months as a standard base period, it very much being a standard globally.
There is provision for applying for six or twelve months and granting will depend on individual circumstances, funds to support yourself being one of those.
Do not hold your breath hoping there is a tourist visa for multiple years but if you have the funds and can convince Immi of your requirement if you do not have a No Further Stay condition on your initial visa you may apply for a further visa onshore.

Having multiple entry for 1 year for a tourist isn't really practical is it? That's why I am asking for multiple years with max 3 month stay per visit.
