Australian ETA Visas
From 21 April 2008, the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship is implementing changes to the ETA system.
The department will continue to process most ETA applications instantly; however, in a small number of cases, some additional processing will be required.
If your ETA cannot be issued immediately please check back in 12 hours to confirm whether your application has been successful.
Please apply for your ETA as early as possible prior to travel to allow sufficient time for your application to be processed.
Electronic Travel Authority
The ETA or Electronic Travel Authority program was designed by the Australian Government to allow tourists from countries like Singapore and over 30 other countries listed below fast access to online visa processing via the internet.
The program is so successful that up to 9 million people a year apply for and receive ETA Visas. Not everyone is approved on the first try and approximately 8% of first try applications are declined for various reasons.
