A visit down under has never been easier with Australia’s announcement of a three-year multiple entry visitor visa for Indian nationals. The trial scheme targets frequent short term travellers to the country and will be implemented from July 2016. This scheme allows each stay to be valid upto a maximum of three months and applies to eligible applicants with tourist and business visitor visas. According to data from Tourism Australia, in 2015, over 2.3 lakh Indians visited Australia spending over Ã¢?¹5,500 crore. A similar scheme is being implemented in Thailand, Vietnam as well as Chile in a bid to attract higher number of high-spending tourists for repeated short travels to Australia. This was announced as part of the Australian Government’s 2016-17 budget to increase the country’s tourism growth.
