First time actually organising and paying for trip to Australia in October.. and i've seen mentioned on several websites about VISAs. I (and all travellers with me) will have current passports.. do we need VISAs? its only a 2 week holiday.  Anyone help explain this to me ?

Visa or master card is accepted in AU and they take cash

But on a serious note with NZ passport no Visa required

Visa or Mastercard? I'm not talking about paying for the trip. I'm talking about entering the country!

lol when i replied it had your original message - lol i didnt see the edited version until i refreshed the page.. ohh well.. thanks for all the replies :) BTW does having a 'non-chipped' passport make any difference? I still have a valid 10 year one, where-as the rest will be new ones.

Non chip passport no issue for AU

But if you like I could sell you a half eaten bag of ETA chicken chips to bribe AU customs with they will go down a treat

No difference, providing it's a machine readable one.

You don't need a Visa to enter Australia, and for everything else, there's Mastercard. (mwahahahahaha)
