An Australian Government mobile application that you can use to lodge an Australian Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) application. The ETA allows eligible passport holders to travel to Australia for short term stays for tourism or business visitor purposes. See the Electronic Travel Authority website to find out more and check your eligibility to apply:

Australia has strict border measures in place to protect the health of the Australian community during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. You cannot come to Australia unless you are exempt from Australia’s travel restrictions and have a valid visa. Check the COVID-19 and the border travel restrictions website to determine your eligibility for an exemption: 

Grant of an ETA through the app does not mean you have been considered for or granted an exemption to travel to Australia.

Please note that use of the Australian ETA app incurs a non-refundable service fee of $20.

Stranded in HK ,

Worst idea from Aus government

This app doesn’t work with the latest HK passport, period. I have called Dep of Home Affair and the reply is “there is nothing we can do. If the app doesn’t work, you can not apply ETA.” Why did Australian government force people to use a broken app? Why couldn’t they stick to the website solution that worked well?

Very Impressed

The app makes the ETA application so much easier, convenient, and faster. I love not having to go through the pain at looking over my document numbers numerous times over. The scan feature really saves time and energy.

Poor Photo Taking

Error of “Face Image Quality Failed” for one applicant no matter using front or back camera, switching off “live”, different lighting, etc. Tried for more than a day. Worked effortless on the same phone for two other applicant.
