VACATIONS & DESTINATIONS REQUIRING A TOURIST VISA

Beginning January 1, 2016 the U.S. Department of State will no longer add visa pages into U.S. passports.
Visa applicants who do not have the required number of blank "visa" pages will be required to renew their passports regardless of remaining validity.

To ensure safe delivery of your documents, we strongly recommend that you do not use UPS for sending your materials to GenVisa. They are extremely unreliable and have a high rate of misdelivered packages.

Australia

You must have a valid U.S. passport and a visa to enter Australia. Most U.S. passport holders traveling to Australia for tourism or business purposes for less than 90 days can obtain an electronic label-free visa (ETA) online. If you would like GenVisa to secure your electronic visa on your behalf, please click the links below for information.

Criminal Record:

If you have a criminal conviction and have been sentenced to a term of imprisonment of 12 months or more, you should not be applying for an ETA. You might be eligible to apply for other types of online visitor visas.

If you are found to be in breach of any condition, your visa can be cancelled at the border and you will not be able to enter Australia.

New Zealand ETA: US passport holders, along with the citizens of 60 other visa waiver countries, visiting New Zealand after October 1, 2019 will be required to obtain an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) for visa-free entry into New Zealand. If you need assistance securing the New Zealand ETA, please contact GenVisa team.
