Australia ETA: Application and Requirements

Are you planning to enter Australia for tourism? If so, you'll need to obtain permission to enter the country. One of the most popular ways to do this is by obtaining an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA).

The Australian ETA is a simple and quick way to get permission to enter Australia for tourism, business, or to visit family and friends. We'll guide you through the application process and highlight the requirements for obtaining an Australian ETA.

To be eligible for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA), you must present certain requirements to the Australian government.

  • Be a genuine visitor: You must be a genuine visitor and plan a temporary stay in Australia while obeying the conditions and stay period attached to your visa.

Do all family members require individual Australian ETAs?

Correct, it's necessary for each family member to apply for their own Australian ETA individually. They cannot be included in a single ETA application. So, if your family members are joining you on your trip to Australia, they must each apply for their own Australian ETA and submit a separate application.

It's important to note that if a minor is traveling with only one parent or legal guardian, they must have a written consent form signed by the other parent or legal guardian. If the other parent is deceased or unable to provide consent, supporting documentation must be provided.

What is an ETA?

An ETA (subclass 601) is an Electronic Travel Authorization that allows eligible passport holders to visit Australia for tourism or business purposes for a stay of up to 90 days Per Entry.

However, it's essential to note that an ETA doesn't allow you to work in Australia, and if you're planning to work, you'll need to apply for a different visa type.
