Which countries do you need a VISA for in South America?
Looking at staying about 2 weeks max in each country

you don't need one prior to going because you are going for tourism purposes, however you will need a passport and to have that passport stamped by local immigration authorities that is done when you get there no paperwork required before you go there... on the way to the country you will be given an immigration card to fill out which you have to say what you are carrying, how long you are staying, why you are going and where you would be staying you fill that out and give it to the local immigration official when entering your final destination along with your passport and you will be cleared on the discretion of the local immigration authorities... you don't need to fill out the cards if you are just stopping over at a country (If you are not dealing with immigration or leaving the airport)
that is basically the process for a tourist visa... however if you are going there for business purposes or going there to work etc... you will need to get in touch with DFAT...

for starters your quoting the website whose services are provided by DFAT... your in a sense quoting a service provided by DFAT to help the gentleman find out visa conditions and saying that DFAT would have no knowledge over the matter... contradiction much
and second of all the Department of Immigration and Citizenship can offer you advice... and probably offer you the same advice as DFAT... and yes you can get advice from immigration about visa conditions to a certain country... Immigration is the enforcement body for immigration and emigration... DFAT role is advisory... I'm not saying you lodge your visa application (If he needs one) with DFAT the gentleman is seeking advise and they would give just as good advise as Immigration would...

no what I was saying is that you fill out one of these forms prior to entering a country when your a tourist... and you hand in a form like this to the immigration officials of the country that you are flying to... besides it doesn't sound like he wants a working visa...
