Visiting Australia

Depending on where you are from, you may be required to apply for a visa to visit Australia.

If you are a UK citizen, you do not need to apply for a visa. You will have to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) in advance of travel. This allows you to come to Australia for short periods of time for tourist or business visitor reasons.

The ETA is electronically linked to your passport and is available to citizens of the following countries:






Most foreign citizens are entitled to stay for 90 days on the ETA without a visa. Once issued, the ETA is typically valid for 12 months following date of issue.

What do I need to visit Australia?

You will need to use a valid passport in order to enter the country.

It is recommended that your passport is in date for at least six months when you travel, owing to restrictions by some airlines and countries.

You will also need a credit or debit card (or valid online Paypal account) as well as a valid email address.

How long does it take to process the Australian ETA?

Going directly to the Australian Government website using their own app is the best way to obtain an ETA. 

Be aware that some "visa processing companies" charge fees well in excess of the Government fees for simply typing your information into the app.

In most cases, the standard processing time will be within 24 hours, at a cost of AUD$20. To receive a faster decision in four hours, there is a fee of AUD$50.

The super rush processing time can be completed within one hour at a cost of AUD$70.

Completing the online ETA form takes approximately 10 minutes.

What information is needed for the ETA form?

The ETA will ask you for the following information:

  • Complete the personal detail and general information section

  • Choose how fast you want your application to be processed

  • Complete the questionnaire based on your individual circumstances
