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:

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.

Doesn’t verify details for the second/ other passport

I use my US passport for the ETA which works but when it asks if you have another current passport which I do and I scan, it doesn’t verify the data as the 2nd passport doesn’t have the chip and doesn’t let me go further. In the past, when applying online, I always entered the information for my other passport and had no problem with ETA approval.

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.

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?
