Australia ETA Visa information

Australia ETA was introduced in 2008 by the Australian Government to speed up the visa application process for citizens of select countries. Applicants eligible for the Australian electronic visa can avoid numerous embassy visits, filing paperwork, or spending long hours on interviews. This multiple-entry travel authorization enables visiting Australia multiple times. ETA holders may stay in Australia for up to 90 days during each visit, while the ETA Visa is valid for 365 days.

As a holder of an Australian ETA electronic visa, you may use it for:

  • leisure: all kinds of tourism-related activities - visiting friends and family, going on holidays, exploring Australian tourist sites, etc.
  • business: participating in training, attending business conferences and meetings, looking for potential business partners, negotiating contracts, etc. (not permanent work)
  • transit: making a transit stop on your way to another travel destination.
