The ETA allows eligible passport holders to travel to Australia for short term stays for tourism or business visitor purposes.

From 21 February 2022 all visa holders who are fully vaccinated for international travel purposes can travel to Australia without a travel exemption. Unvaccinated visa holders will still need a valid travel exemption to enter Australia.

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.

No consideration for people with no electronic literacy

My parents phone has no NFC and all the travel agents keep saying they don’t know how to do it. End of the day, this app is only for certain groups of people. Making travelling accessible to certain groups of people. Modern day discrimination. You don’t have the latest up to date phone, well looks like you don’t deserve to travel. Bring back the web as well, keep both. Everyone deserves to travel.

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.

Mum killed a day and money

My mum used it with my supervision. App accepted Canadian credit card with a authentication message to her mobile. However payment hasn’t gone through and app didn’t notify failed payment at all. She waited for a day. At the end I realised it’s the payment issue causing the delay. I let mum to use my credit card instead and she got the visa instantly. She wasted a day and money for airpor hotel as she tried this visa at the transit country.
