What documents do Australian citizens need to return to Australia?

If you are an Australian citizen, you:

  • do not need a visa to enter Australia
  • must have a valid Australian passport or other acceptable travel document
  • will need a completed and signed Incoming Passenger Card.

If you are an Australian citizen and you hold dual or multiple nationalities, you should use your Australian passport to enter or leave Australia, even if you use a foreign passport when you are outside Australia. The only exception is if you have been issued with an Australian Declaratory Visa.
