Some visa applicants will need to provide biometrics at an Australian Visa Application Centre (AVAC) or an Australian Biometrics Collection Centre (ABCC).
The term ‘biometrics’ is not known by everyone, and some people are puzzled about what it actually is.
What are Biometrics for a Visa?.
Biometrics for an Australian visa include:
