Australia Electronic Travel Authority and eVisitor Visas

With its vibrant culture, diverse wildlife and numerous world class tourist destinations, Australia has long been an extremely popular travel hotspot. For years however, the difficulty in traveling to Australia extended beyond the lengthy travel times from most areas due to its relatively isolated global geographic location, but also to the difficulty in attaining a travel visa for entry.

Fortunately, in recent years, the process of attaining an entry visa to Australia has gotten much easier for citizens of many nations, thanks in large part to two new digital visas: The Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) and the subclass 651 eVisitor visa. Both visas are covered in GovAssist’s processing and concierge services, and the process can be done entirely online, with approval typically within 2 days, and often in as short as a matter of minutes!

Available to citizens of eight countries including the United States and Canada, the Electronic Travel Authority, commonly known as an ETA, allows for unlimited entries to Australia within a 12-month period. Each individual visit can be for up to 3 months at a time. The conditions required for approval are relatively light, mainly having a valid passport that is valid beyond the ETA period from an eligible country, as well as not having any serious criminal convictions or the disease tuberculosis. While the ETA does not allow you to work in Australia, it does allow for attending conferences and business negotiations. Overall, this is a very flexible and highly sought-after visa.

The Subclass 651 eVisitor visa is similar to the ETA, with the same 12-month validity for visits of up to 3 months at a time. The primary difference between the two is that the eVisitor visa is available to a much larger group of countries. The application for and conditions are a bit more extensive than the ETA, but the process is still quick and straight forward, especially if you apply through GovAssist.

Whether it is an ETA or eVisitor visa you are after, GovAssist will be there to help you every step of the way.
