I hold a Philippine passport traveling to New Zealand in transit at Melbourne, Australia. I have New Zealand tourist visa. Do I need to get transit visa in Australia for a 3 hours in transit ?

1 Answer 1


Citizens of Philippines don't need a transit visa if the following criteria are met:

  • enter Australia by aircraft
  • hold a confirmed onward booking to leave Australia to travel to a third country on the same or another aircraft within 8 hours of arrival in Australia
  • hold documentation necessary to enter the country of destination and
  • not need to leave the airport transit lounge except to continue their journey
