People travelling to Australia and New Zealand for the 2015 Cricket World Cup will only need to apply for one visa, as agreed by the Prime Ministers of Australia and New Zealand. This visa will be issued in accordance with Australia’s existing visa framework and will streamline procedures for genuine Cricket World Cup spectators and participants.
In February and March 2015, Australia and New Zealand will co-host the Cricket World Cup.
Australia and New Zealand are working together closely to implement this new visa arrangement. Further information on the new arrangements will be provided as it becomes available on our website.
In the meantime, if you are planning to visit Australia and New Zealand now, or wish to apply now for visas to travel at a later date, you will still need to apply for two visas, one for each country.
If you are transiting through Australia, you may need to apply for a transit visa. Or, if you are transiting through New Zealand to reach your destination, you may need to apply for a New Zealand transit visa
