Australian eVisitor Visa for Citizens of Germany

Australia has strict rules about who can enter Australia unless they are Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or New Zealand citizens. There is a bewildering variety of different visas that are possible to apply for depending on the reasons for coming to Australia. Currently, only Australian citizens or residents are allowed into Australia unless an exemption is granted because of the ongoing pandemic. This situation may change in the near future, but the rules are quite dynamic as they are in many other countries around the world as governments battle to contain the Sars-Cov-2 virus and keep their respective populations as protected from Covid-19 as possible. The information about the Australian eVisitor visa (subclass 651) has been taken from the department of Home Affairs website and must be viewed in conjunction with current rules concerning exemptions, as these change the eligibility for the eVisitor visa substantially at the present.

When Do You Need Birth Certificate Translation?

Birth certificates have a multiple of uses even though they are often left in drawers or cupboards or even lost for years without being used. If you live in the country of your birth all the time, you are unlikely to ever really need your birth certificate apart from applying for a passport when you are eligible to do so.

Why Medical Translations Are More Important Than Ever

Medical translation

is the translation of all types of medical information and documentation from its source language to every other language where needed. Medical translation services use professional translators who have a medical background because of the importance of accuracy in this field of translation. It’s not just a question of understanding terminology in more than a single language but it is an ability to retain the medical message during translation that is so essential.

Partly because of the current ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, medical communication between scientists, epidemiologists, vaccinologists, biochemists and health authorities is more important than ever before. All these individuals and organisations speak a multitude of languages, which means that it falls to certified medical translators to ensure that everyone can communicate freely through effective medical translation.

Translating COVID-19 Tests and Vaccination Status

Many countries, especially the wealthier ones, are now at the point when restrictions used to combat COVID-19 are being eased or even completely removed. In their place are a whole heap of new ways of proving that an individual is COVID-free, including recent negative PCR tests, rapid antigen tests, and vaccine “passports” and their equivalents. Those countries that experienced the worst outbreaks of the disease were often the first to launch massive vaccination programmes, which have been of varied success, but at least have reduced hospitalisations and deaths.
