Do I need to provide my photograph and fingerprints if I lodge my visa application online?

If applying in Australia: you do not have to provide your photograph and fingerprints unless we ask you to.

If applying from outside Australia: it will depend on:

We will contact you in writing if you need to provide your photograph and fingerprints. If your online lodgement is unsuccessful, you will need to go to an Australian Visa Application Centre to lodge your visa application. We will take your photograph and scan your fingerprints there.​​​
