What is an Australian ETA e-Visa?

An Electronic Travel Authority or ETA / e-Visitor Visa is an electronically stored authority for travel to Australia for short term Tourist or Business travel.

Tourist ETA – The Tourist ETA applies for travel for tourism only. Tourism includes vacation, holidays, recreation and visiting family and/or friends. It is valid for 1 year for multiple entries of up to 3 months.

Business ETA – The Business ETA applies to business purposes only. Business purposes may include attending a meeting, conference, negotiation or an exploratory business visit. It is valid for 1 year for multiple entries of up to 3 months.

An Australian ETA visa may be issued by Travel Document Systems to citizens of the following nationalities only:

Group 1 ETA Visa - United States, Canada, Brunei - Darussalam, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore
Group 2 e-Visitor Visa - Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Vatican City.

The ETA or e-Visitor visa is good for multiple entries to Australia and allows travelers to stay in the country for stays of up to 90 days on any one entry.

The ETA / e-Visitor visa is recorded electronically which eliminates visa stamps or labels in your passport. If an Australian ETA is granted you must take your current valid passport to the airline check in counter where the ticket agent will pull up your issued Australia ETA visa in their records, using the passport information you provided to Travel Document Systems.

ETA e-Visitor Visa Conditions

  • You must not work while in Australia unless advised otherwise by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.
  • You can enter Australia as many times as you want during a 12 month period from the date the ETA is granted or until the expiry date of your passport whichever is earlier.
  • You must not study for more than three months.
  • You must be free from tuberculosis. You are responsible for all your health costs while you are in Australia. You will not be covered by Australia's national health scheme (Medicare) unless your country has a reciprocal health care agreement with Australia. It is recommend that you take out health insurance each time you travel to Australia.
  • If you have had any criminal convictions in any country, you should apply for a Visitor visa (subclass 600), rather than an ETA. If you arrive on an ETA with criminal convictions, you could be refused entry to Australia.

  • You must be outside of Australia in order to apply for an ETA.
