What is the Frequent Traveller Stream?

For frequent travellers to Australia, this new visa could be a huge convenience.

The Frequent Traveller stream is a recent amendment made to the Migration Act of 1958. The amendment added the Subclass 600 option meant for visitors. If you qualify, this stream can allow you to visit Australia over the course of up to 10 years.

Subclass 600 is meant for tourists or individuals who are doing business in the country. There is a base charge of $1,000 for this type of visa. There are some limitations that travelers should be aware of. They include:

  • Visitors cannot stay for longer than 12 months in a 24 month period
  • Allows multiple entry for a stay of up to 3 months per entry
  • A medical assessment may be required before approval
  • Only available to individuals from specified countries
