Bio-metrics

Most of Australia Visas require the process of Biometrics wherein applicants are required to visit
Australian Visa Application Centre (AVAC) or an Australian Biometrics Collection Centre (ABCC) to
validate their identification by including:

  • Fingerprints
  • Face Structure (photos)

Though, Indians are not included in the Australia biometrics program, but the Embassy or Depart of
home affairs can ask for Biometrics for Indian as per their requirement.

Biometrics are performed to protect the applicants from any identity fraud, make travel to Australia safer
and secure their borders. They further may cross-examine the applicant’s identity, criminal history and
protection status.
