Tasmania is a state in the Commonwealth of Australia. Tasmanians are citizens of Australia, travel on Australian passports and vote in federal elections.
International flights do not arrive directly into Tasmania. Travellers arriving by air must pass through immigration prior to arriving in Tasmania. The immigration clearance process takes place on mainland Australia, prior to entering Tasmania.
Travellers entering Australia on a foreign passport will need a visa regardless of the purpose or duration of their stay.
Tourists from selected countries (New Zealand) are exempt.
