Purchases from us may be subject to handling fees, credit card fees and delivery fees. Prices are from a starting price per person sharing, subject to change and availability. Please note that the price printed on a Ticket is usually its initial face value rather than the purchase price. You will not be entitled to a refund on the basis that you have paid a higher price than the face value of the Ticket. The price paid for a Ticket represents its true value at the time of purchase. Prices may vary and you will not be entitled to a refund if the price of similar Tickets subsequently changes.

Where the Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you regarding the price difference before dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price. If we are unable to contact you after making reasonable endeavours to do so, you agree that we may treat the order as canceled. If you choose to cancel after you have already paid the incorrect price, you will receive a full refund from us.

 

Visas

Visas

Hereunder we have provided helpful information regarding the relevant Visa process, however, it is still your sole responsibility to follow up on the correct procedure should anything have changed since our last investigation into this process.

South African passport holders need a VISA to enter Australia.
South African passport holders can apply online for an Australian visa or at a visa application centre in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban.
You should lodge your visa application well in advance (at least 4 weeks) of your date of departure.

How to Apply
1. Check that your Passport has a validity of at least 6 months after the date of your travels to Australia.
2. Collect all the required Documentation
Certified copies of all original documents are required, but police certificates must be the originals.
If you supply documents in a language other than English, then they must be accompanied by certified English translation.
You will also need to supply a completed version of the application form, and it’s important that you use the latest version of the form depending on the visa you’re looking for. For visa options: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-finder
Each applicant must fill in their own separate form – note that a child counts as a separate applicant and each of them must have their own forms filled out.
You will need to provide documentation which convinces Australian immigration authorities that you:
• have sufficient funds to support yourself during your holiday in Australia.
• meet the health requirements.
• are going to do, and only do the activities in the Tourism stream. Provide a detailed itinerary. Include details of your hotel reservations or if you’re staying with a friend/family then their details and a letter of invitation to visit. This also involves making Australia comfortable that you are going to leave at the end of your stay; e.g. provide evidence of property you own in South Africa, ask your employer to write a letter indicating that the leave is temporary and you are returning to your job, list family members who stay in South Africa and/or show that you are enrolled at a university, school or college which you’ll be returning to, to study.
• meet the character requirements, as set out in the Migration Act. You will need to answer a plethora of questions about your criminal record.
• Provide copies of your military discharge papers and service record; if applicable.
• do not owe any money to Australia’s government.
• if you are a parent/step-parent of somebody residing in Australia, then point this out, as they’ll be more open to providing a longer stay.
If you’re younger than eighteen then the following documents are required, signed before a Notary:
• Form 1257.
• Proof that you are a student at your school/college/university.
• Prove that all those who lawfully may decide where you may be, consents to you being in Australia.
• If one or both of your parents wont be accompanying you, then you need your unabridged birth certificate, a completed Form 1229 signed by both parents and with both parents’ ID/passport and photos.
• Provide two forms of ID, with a signature, for a parent who is not accompanying you.
• If one of your parents have died, then provide evidence that your remaining parent or legal guardian has legal custody over you.
• If there are any legal custody issues, then provide details thereof.
• If both your parents aren’t travelling with you; then you will require a declaration signed by the person who will be taking care of you in Australia.
Additionally:
• a copy of the pages in your passport which shows your personal details and photograph), and other countries to which you have travelled.
• Specify the street address (not postal address!) where you are staying whilst your visa application is being considered, and inform if you change your address for more than 2 weeks (14 days).
• Passport photos taken in the last 6 months.
• If you’re wanting somebody else to receive communications, then complete form 956, 956A and Part K.
Ensure that all documents are certified.
Once you have completed all the forms, make a copy for yourself.
3. Apply online via an IMMI account
We assume you’re residing in South Africa, ie outside of Australia (there are different rules for applying within Australia, e.g. when trying to extend a visa). You will first set up an online IMMI account with the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration and Border Protection. This is where you will fill in the application form and also upload the documents required for the visa. Once you submit this, you will receive a confirmation email. In this email, you will get an attachment and in it you will see a bar-code and a number under it. This is your VLN number. You will require the VLN number for the next step in the process, when you set up an appointment with TLScontact.
To create an online IMMI Account. Once you have logged in, click “New application”: https://online.immi.gov.au/lusc/register
Select the type of application you’re making, either:
• Temporary Skill Shortage Visa
• Air & Sea Crew
• APEC
• Citizenship
• Family
• Health
• Refugee & Humanitarian
• Resident Return
• Skilled Migration
• Student
• Temporary Work (Activity)
• Visitor
• Work & Holiday
4. Set up appointment with TLScontact
In order to progress to this step you must have first obtained a VLN number, as outlined in the previous step. You must make an appointment before going to the TLScontact visa application centre to do your application. Select the visa application centre you’d like to use: https://corp.tlscontact.com/
At the top left of the following screen click “Register” to set up a profile with your email address, or log in if you already have a profile. You will then be given a TSLScontact reference number (e.g. M123456). Please note that you will then need to create an application in order to book your appointment as per the steps described below:
• Click “Create an application”.
• Fill in the application with the purpose of your travel and your personal information.
• Confirm the application by clicking on the “Confirm” button.
• Choose your appointment date and time.
During your visit, you should inter alia provide your original passport, the confirmation letter (with a barcode) and the service fees amount.
5. Pay the applicable Fees
There are 2 types of fees which are payable: (1) an application service fee, and (2) a visa application charge. These fees are not set out here, as they are changed on 1 July of each year.
These fees are non-refundable – e.g. if your visa is refused you don’t get your money back.
These fees are paid to TLScontact. The preferred method of payment is via credit card, but debit cards may also be used.

AUSTRALIAN F1 GP

From R40,999.00 pp

The Australian Grand Prix is a motor race held annually in Australia currently under contract to host Formula One until 2023. The Grand Prix is the second oldest surviving motor racing competition held in Australia, after the Alpine rally first held in 1921, having been contested 83 times since it was first run at Phillip Island in 1928. It is currently sponsored with naming rights by Swiss watchmaker Rolex.

Australian driver Lex Davison and German driver Michael Schumacher are the most successful drivers in the 86-year history of the event taking four wins each, while McLaren and Ferrari have been the most successful constructors with twelve victories each. Frenchman Alain Prost is the only driver to win the Australian Grand Prix in both Australian domestic and World Championship formats, having won the race in 1982 driving a Formula Pacific Ralt RT4 and in Formula One in 1986 and 1988.
