How can we help?

I’ve purchased an Australian Tourist Visa- what happens next?

An Australian ETA tourist visa is valid for 12 months from the date it is issued or until the expiry date of your passport, whichever is sooner. The ETA is electronically linked to your passport number so you must travel on the passport it is issued to. It allows multiple entries into Australia of up to 3 months per trip.

Processing time: Please allow up to 72 hours although in many cases your ETA will be processed more quickly than this.
