Default Visitor Visa question.

Next June or July we are planning to visit Australia for about 4 or 5 months and have been looking at what visa we need. About 2 months in we are planning a week long visit to one of the islands, Fiji, Samoa or somewhere else. Would this short trip out of the country reset a 3 month visitor visa, so we wouldn't have to go to the hassle and expense of getting and paying for a 6 month visa? I understand that the 3 month ETA for our US Passports is valid for multiple visits in a 12 month period.

We also planning a trip to New Zealand at the end of the trip, but more than 3 months after we arrive. NZ doesn't appear to require a visitor visa ahead of time.

Yes, you would get another three months on re-entry after the trip to the islands.

Excellent, I was hoping that it was going to be as simple as that.

Next question is for any recommendations for a week / 10 days visit from Australia.

sounds as though you'll be on the Oz east coast, so can't help much there. If you were in Perth I'd suggest Bali - it's not everyone's cup of tea but if you don't mind a bit of heat and humidity it's a great and inexpensive holiday from here - you can go to the crazy mad places like Kuta, or stay in a very quiet area.

If you're looking at Fiji etc, have you considered a cruise? They seem to be very well priced from the east coast and you get to see a few places rather than just one. Have fun planning, I reckon it's one of the best parts of a holiday

Thanks for the suggestion, we'll definitely look into a cruise.
