Electronic Travel Authority (ETA)



In an effort to expedite visa and immigration processing of tourist and short term business travelers to Australia, the Australian Government introduced the Electronic Travel Authority System (ETAS) in late 1996. This groundbreaking system allows authorized users to submit an application via an electronic interface on behalf of most people wishing to stay in Australia for up to three months while also providing airport and major cruise line carriers the ability to electronically verify their passenger’s authority to enter Australia.

Within 24 hours after you submit your documents, you will receive an email or fax (your choice) from us notifying you of the outcome of your application.

ETA’s (Click HERE for ETA Eligible Countries) are issued for a one year or entire validity of a passport, allowing single/multiple visits to Australia. You do not have to be residing in the U.S. and do not need to send us anything but a copy of your passport and payment to avail for this convenient service.

U.S. embassies and consulates assist nearly 200,000 Americans each year who are victims of crime, accident, or illness, or whose loved ones need to contact them in an emergency. Although it is unlikely, should natural disaster, terrorism, or civil unrest strike during your foreign travel, the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate would be your source of assistance and information. By registering your trip, you help the embassy or consulate locate you when you might need them the most.
