What is ETA?

The Electronic Travel Authority (or ETA) or Australian Tourist Visa provides a streamlined way to travel to and enter the country.

The ETA benefits foreign citizens travelling to Australia by allowing a swift process that includes no paper application, and no stamps on the passport.

As the ETA is electronically linked to your passport, you ought to travel with the passport your visa is issued for. In case of stolen or lost passport, you will have to re-apply for the visa.

How long does it take to get?

The processing time for the Australian ETA/Evisitor visa is within 24 hours of receiving your data during business hours from Monday to Saturday.
