Visas, Migration and Australian Citizenship

Welcome to the Visa and Citizenship Office at the Australian Embassy in Tel Aviv. We are an overseas office of The Department of Home Affairs.

The following pages will provide you with information regarding Australian citizenship and visa options for visitors, workers, students or migrants. With the exception of Australian and New Zealand citizens, all people travelling to Australia require a visa prior to arrival. We recommend that you do not make any travel commitments before you obtain a valid visa or travel authority. We encourage all applicants to lodge their applications as early as possible before their planned travel.
  

CERTIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS

You are not required to provide certified copies of any of the documents with your application. However, we reserve the right to request to see originals or certified copies following the initial assessment of the application.  We will provide you with further information if it becomes necessary for you to provide originals or certified copies.


Certification of documents in Israel and the Palestinian Territories must be made by any practicing Notary/Notarion or a Lawyer.

 

TRANSLATION OF DOCUMENTS

All identity documents (i.e. birth, adoption, marriage, divorce, death, and discharge from the Army) must have a certified English translation by a notary or an accredited Australian NAATI translator.  You may select your NAATI translator by the language services they provide, including Hebrew and Arabic.  Some of them may be operating from offices outside Australia, including Israel (See: NAATI)

Please note that our Visa and Immigration Office is unable to provide translating services or recommend translators. 

Please not that you are not required to provide the original translations with your application. Copies of the original translations will be sufficient for the lodgement of the application.  However, we reserve the right to request the original translations following the initial assessment of your application.
