We're providing a new service for people wishing to travel to Australia for a short visit. Through our site, you can now apply for an Australian Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) visa.

An ETA visa is for people who wish to visit Australia for short holidays, tourism, recreation, business trips, and informal studies or training. ETA visas can be acquired quite easily through a travel agency, airline, or an Australian visa office. However, ETA visas can also be acquired online at our site if you hold a passport from an eligible country below:

Eligible Passports
GreeceHong Kong (SAR)Iceland
MaltaMonacoThe Netherlands
NorwayPortugalRepublic of San Marino
SingaporeSouth KoreaSpain
SwedenSwitzerlandUK - British Citizen

An ETA visa allows a person to visit Australia for up to three months on each visit to Australia within a 12-month period from the date of grant. The ETA visa is electronically linked to the passport number used in the application, so no documentation is needed when arriving in Australia for purpose of entry other than your passport.

We charge a fee of £18 per applicant. Once an application has been submitted, we will examine your details and make sure that they are entered into the Electronic Travel Authority System correctly. Once your application has been confirmed, you will be contacted by email.
