What you need to know about the Visa Marr deal

Visa Marrs deal with travel agencies to help travellers bypass visa checks at border crossings has been in the works for more than a year and was signed in November last year.

The deal, which was announced in December last year, will allow foreign travel agencies that meet a certain number of conditions, including providing full refunds, to operate in Australia.
