Australian ETA Visas System Information
How does an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) work?
An ETA is an electronically stored authority for travel to Australia which replaces the traditional visa label / stamp in a passport. It can be viewed and checked by all airline and cruise operators around the world through an electronic travel reservation system. When you arrive to check in, the airlines and cruise operators can check your visa by accessing the Government's electronic visa database.
Australian Online Visas has authorised access to the Australian Government's electronic visa system and can arrange an electronic holiday or business visa for you. We will send you a comprehensive email that confirms that your visa has been issued and all other relevant details (dates of validity, conditions etc). Remember that the holder of an ETA does not have a visa label placed in their passport. When you arrive to check in, the airlines and cruise operators can check your visa by accessing the electronic visa system and confirming the visa through your passport number.

The tourist ETA visa...
The Tourist ETA Visa is valid for 12 months from date of issue for multiple entries of up to three months per entry. You are not permitted to work in Australia with this visa. If you intend to stay for longer than 3 months (even just 1 day), then you should apply for a longstay visa at your nearest Australian Diplomatic Mission, or extend your visa at a Department of Immigration office in Australia. We can arrange a tourist ETA within 24 hours for A$10, Gbp 6, Can$9.90, Sgp$12, US$10).
The Business ETA Visa...
ETA Business Visas are designed for business people visiting Australia for conferences, visiting subsidiaries, investigating markets or conducting business. They do not permit the holder to work and can not be extended. (For a work visa, or if you wish to stay longer than 3 months on any one stay, you must contact the nearest Australian Diplomatic Mission). For more information about the business visa, click here.
The MAL Checking System
When passport details are entered into the booking system, they are checked against the Australian Government Migrant Alert List (MAL). We can not arrange a visa for a person whose name appears on the MAL system. Occasionally people with very similar names to those listed on MAL are also caught by this system. In these circumstances we will charge no fee and advise you within 24 hours that you will need to approach the nearest Australian Embassy to arrange your visa.
