Expats who are travelling to Australia must have an approved travel document as evidence for their identity and nationality. The preferred travel document would be a passport but other forms of travel documents will be accepted.

The following documents should be presented to officers to clear immigration

• Valid passport or an acceptable travel document
• Valid visas or authority to enter the country
