As the 2023 World Cup approaches, it’s important to ensure you have all the necessary documents for travel. If you plan on visiting Australia or New Zealand for the tournament, you must check the visa requirements and apply for one in advance.

In fact, New Zealand is recommending visitors to have applications submitted by end of April to avoid any processing concerns.

Note: if you’re flying through in-transit and not staying in either country, there may be applicable visas to consider as well.

Australia 🇦🇺

The Australian Department of Home Affairs website has all the details you need to know about obtaining a visa, including eligibility criteria and application procedures.

New Zealand 🇳🇿

Similarly, New Zealand’s immigration website provides all the necessary information about visa requirements and how to apply for them. Be sure to check the specific requirements that apply to your country of origin.

Other Notes

In addition to visa requirements, it’s important to keep track of your World Cup ticket confirmation numbers. These numbers are available in your FIFA account and are also sent to you via email once a purchase is complete. While there’s nothing officially about needing these confirmation numbers in regards to a visa to either country, you never know if you’ll need them in the future so it is smart to ensure you are familiar with accessing this data.

For those who have attended previous World Cup tournaments, you know that accommodation and transportation are key considerations. With the tournament set to take place across multiple cities in two countries, it’s essential to plan ahead and book accommodation in each host city or a few cities you plan to base yourself in.
