ETA Visa Status.

FAQs.

All travellers, including children, to Australia, except Australians and New Zealanders, require an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA Visa) for visitor/tourist or business purposes.

This is the world's most advanced electronic visa issuing system and replaces having to travel, contact in person or via post an Australian Diplomatic office for a label or stamp to be placed into a passport.

Through this site we provide the information you need and a user-friendly, fast, simple, secure, 24/7 end to end service to obtain your ETA Visa within 15 minutes to 24 hours (depending on time zones).

Because our service is provided through an Australian based licenced travel agent who is also a member of major industry associations, you can be comfortable knowing you're dealing with a professional and reputable company.

It is not necessary to have a trip already booked or hold an airline or cruise ship ticket before being issued with your ETA Visa. In fact, the Australian Government recommends you arrange your ETA Visa before booking any part of your trip to ensure approval has been granted to visit Australia.

From this site you can:

  • Apply online for an ETA Visa

    for yourself and others

  • Use our easy step by step one stop shop 5 minute application and processing service

  • Check, as a free service, the validity of an

    existing ETA Visa

    issued through this site

All you require is a valid passport, *credit card and to answer a few simple questions.

Provided you meet the simple criteria, answer all the questions honestly and correctly, there should be no problems issuing with an ETA Visa. You will have the opportunity to review and change your details during the application process but when you proceed with your credit card transaction no refund will be provided if you have made an error or the application is not approved.

If you are not eligible for an ETA Visa, you should contact your nearest Australian visa office.

Travellers will not be allowed to depart from their exit point or enter Australia without a valid ETA Visa.
