Electronic Travel Authority (Subclass 601):

Travel Purposes:

This visa allows travel to Australia for tourism, visiting family or friends, and business purposes. However, if the primary reason is for study, applying for a student visa is recommended.

Cruise Information:

A visa is required for entry during a cruise. For round trip cruises from Australia, cruise time counts as part of the Australian stay, and the visa period is not reset.

Business Visitor Details:

Business visitors can engage in various activities but are restricted from working for or providing services to Australian-based businesses. The ETA is not a work visa, and any paid work may lead to visa cancellation.

Duration and Entry:

This temporary visa is valid for up to 12 months or the passport validity period, whichever is shorter. It allows multiple entries, enabling travelers to leave and re-enter Australia as many times as needed, with a 3-month stay permitted after each entry.

Extension and Processing:

Extensions are not allowed; instead, applicants must apply for another visa. Processing times are typically immediate, but delays may occur if there are inaccuracies or additional information is required.

Your obligations

You must meet all visa conditions and obey Australian laws.


There is no Visa Application Charge (VAC), but a AUD20 application service fee is applicable when using the Australian ETA app.

Visa label

We will digitally link your visa to your passport. You will not get a label in your passport.​​

Your ETA is attached to your current passport. If your current passport expires or you get a new passport:

  • your ETA will cease
  • you must apply for a new ETA
