    AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND AND FIJI?

    ok so i'm travelling in less than 6 months now YAY and thought i'd do a bit of research about what visas i need, though i'm just rubbish and found it hard to find anything, AND SO i was wondering if anyone can help me out?

    we just need visitor ones for all of them, and i know you definitely need one for australia but how about nz and fiji?

    our stop over is also in los angeles so i'm thinking i might need something for that as well?

    any advice appreciated

    also tell me about your travels!

    thanks, jade

    For the US you just need to get a ESTA.

    Pretty sure you don't need one for NZ unless you're planning to stay more than two months (I think).

    Not sure about Fiji.

    I went to Dallas, TX and was allowed to stay 60 days, they stamped my passport and everything was fine. Could be different in California though, it's the same country but a lot varies between states, you should definitely check all the necessities anyway, try contacting the british embassy or maybe there is an official travellers helpline?

    I have been to all those places.
    NZ and Fiji you don't need a visa.
    Australia you do and its one of the more hasslesome (is that a word?) countries to enter into, though made easier if you are a British Citizen.
    America has a programme set up with the United Kingdom whereby you can stay up to a certain length of time (i think 30 days) without needing a visa. Its called the Visa Waiver Programme if you want to look it up.

    So...
    NZ, Fiji, America = NO (you will just get given a small form to fill out on the plane before you land for each of these places which will be visa and customs related)
    Australia = YES (you can apply online if you visit the Australian Embassy website)

    Not nearly as bad as the US, mind you NZ made a big deal about a pair of boots right at the bottom of my bag.

    I didn't find it too bad for the US but I guess it depends what state you are going into, going into Hawaii there was just a few security checks at the airport. Australia I had to fill in a 30 page visa online then got held back at customs for like an hour while they picked me up on every minor thing in my bag which could be considored a false declaration.

    And they also conviscated my Shuriken (Throwing Stars) -- even though they were blunt at the ends, *******s!

    You never know when you might need them...

    But seriously, I'd bought them in Japan as a gift for someone back home (I'd flown into Oz from Japan).
