The Visitor visa (subclass 600) lets you visit Australia for tourism or business visitor activities. Tourism includes holidays, recreation and seeing family or friends. A Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), also referred to as a visitor visa, is an official document issued by a Australian visa office in the form of electronic paper that shows you have met the requirements for admission to Australia as a temporary resident.
In order to qualify, applicants have to prove to Australia high commission that they are suitable candidates for the visa. The conditions required for visa officers to consider in making decisions on whether to grant or deny visitor visa applications are as follows:
This is a temporary visa.
You can stay for the period or dates specified on the visa grant letter. High commission determines the length of your visa on a case by case basis. Things might get consider for determining your stay period includes:

You might get visa with one entry or multiple entries. If High commission grants you a visa with multiple entries, you can leave and re-enter Australia on the visa while it is valid. Generally they grant stay period of 3 months, but might grant a stay of up to 12 months in certain circumstances.
It is a condition of this visa that you can’t stay in Australia for a total of more than 12 months in an 18-month period. If you currently hold a Visitor visa, a Working Holiday visa, a Work and Holiday visa or a bridging visa, and grant of this visa would mean you stay in Australia for more than 12 consecutive months, you will need to show there are exceptional circumstances.
