How long can you transit in Australia without a visa?
Hi Janey! I don’t know the exact timeframe, but it’ll probably be anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours. There are different levels of visas, and the ones I know of were for only a small percentage of the people, and I don’t know if they have anything like that for everyone. If you do have to go through customs and immigration, I don’t think it’s worth it.
I am traveling to Berlin in April for six hours/nine to five, and I have a layover in Dublin, Ireland. I have an Irish passport, do you think I can leave the airport and go out to see what it is like?
Hi Sean! I think 6 hours is plenty of time to leave the airport and see a little bit of Dublin. You’ll need to calculate the time to get in and out of the city, through security on your way back into the city, possibly going through customs and immigration when you land, possibly going through exiting passport control before your next flight, getting back an hour or two before your next flight, and the time it takes to get off the first flight. (For reference, it’s about 2 hours for me to leave the airport and walk through Dublin.) So just leave yourself enough time coming back for that part of your trip, and give yourself plenty of time coming back for getting off the first flight. If you decide to stay in Dublin, be sure to have a hotel or something to go to the city center, because getting stuck with an international flight ticket to Berlin is a big deal.

How long can you transit in Australia without a visa? I’m not sure what the requirements are, but I’m not a visa expert.
Hi Janey! It depends. Are you looking at the normal 24 hour layover time frame? It’s probably closer to 24-36 hours, but let’s say you missed a lot of business meetings because of transport. Then you’d have to go through customs and immigration to leave the airport, and you’d have to go through security before your next flight. So you might have a few hours in Sydney before your next flight. I can only assume that you’re going to have to go through customs and immigration to leave the airport, and that’ll leave you with maybe an hour tops in the city. I know that’s a long time to be in a transit lounge, but I’m not sure that’s worth the stress.
I have a very similar question to many others, and it all comes down to timing. I am traveling from London to Helsinki with Lufthansa airline on a Schengen visa. I have a 20hr layover in Lisbon. Would I have enough time for a visit into the city or would I have to stay in the airport?
Hi Folarin! I haven’t spent a lot of time in Lisbon, but the old town is kind of cute. I’d love to see the Old Town, but it looks like it’ll be pretty hard to get in and out of. I’d also recommend looking at one or two smaller tourist sites in Lisbon, maybe one that has a restaurant or something. You could just go around the corner and backtrack a little bit.

How long can you transit in Australia without a visa? I’m trying to plan a trip to Fiji in august and there is a high chance i won’t be able to get out of the airport without going through customs and immigration. Do you think that’s possible and if so, do you have any experience travelling by plane? I also’m not sure how long it’s worth to leave the airport after customs and immigration as it would suck to sit in the middle of the tarmac for hours.
Hi Marilyn! I’m not a visa expert, but some countries will let you leave the airport and you can go wherever you want during your layover. (Australia is one of them.) But there are definitely times when you’ll need a visa to leave the airport, and there are some countries that don’t need visas anymore because of recent events. I’d recommend checking the Australian embassy website for info on what your visa needs to leave, and then looking at the embassy book store to see what kinds of clothes and luggage they have left behind for you to use. Looks like you could leave the airport and go explore the city for a few hours, if the lines are any problem. From a planning standpoint, it looks like you’ll probably have 2 hours tops in the city, and maybe a little less. I’m not sure which is better, but that’s how I see it. Just don’t do it.
I have a very similar question to many others but I’m more concerned about my checked bags. I will be travelling through Singapore on my way back from Thailand to Canada. I do not need a visa for Singapore.
