In a statement, Amazon said: “Amazon will continue to work with the Australian Government to secure permanent residency for all of its customers who have applied for the new Visa Waiver Program.”
Amazon Australia has also announced that its new online store, Amazon.com.au, will offer the opportunity to buy eligible goods from a range of retailers and Australian Government suppliers.
“Amazon Australia is not the first online retailer to announce it is accepting applications for a Visa Waivers program.
Last week, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) announced it would be accepting applications from businesses and companies to take part in the program.
This year, Amazon’s move follows the announcement by Starbucks Australia that it will also be accepting the Visa Waives program.
