eVisitor Visa / ETA

Citizens of most European countries wishing to visit Australia for a brief vacation or business trip (up to three months) may apply online for an eVisitor visa.  There is no charge for this visa. Applications must  be submitted prior to departing for Australia and before travel arrangements are made. Visitors can also apply for an eVisitor visa through a travel agent, airline, specialist service provider or an Australian visa office outside Australia. Travellers from countries outside the EU may qualify for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) visa.

ETA holders and eVisitors must hold a valid passport and generally will be expected to demonstrate that they have:

  • Booked a return flight or an onward journey to a country they are eligible to enter,
  • Evidence that they can provide for themselves during their stay in Australia.

Citizens of countries that are not listed as eligible for eVisitor or ETA visas must apply for a visitor visa under other categories. Please contact us if you not sure whether you qualify for an eVisitor or ETA visa.

Once in Australia, visitors who would like to stay longer than three months may apply to the Department of Home Affairs for an extension.
