An Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) provides authorisation to travel to and enter Australia and is electronically linked to your passport. It is valid for 12 months from the day of issuance and allows for multiple visits to Australia for stays of up to 3 months at each visit.
Eligible passport: Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, United States, Canada
Processing time: It is recommended to apply for an ETA at least 3 working days before traveling to Australia. The processing time takes less than a day to complete, however you may need to wait for 12 hours if your ETA is not approved on the same day.
