1) Australia Visitor Visa-ETA Short Stay
The Electronic Travel Authority for Australian Tourist Visas is the most advanced and streamlined visa authorization system in the world. The ETA replaces visa labels or stamps and removes the need for application forms. The Australian ETA is an electronically stored authority for travel to Australia, meaning you don’t need paper documentation or a stamp in your passport.
What is the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA)?
The Electronic Travel Authority (or ETA) is the name given to the most commonly used Australian Tourist Visa allows you to stay in Australia for up to 3 months on each arrival within 12 months from the date the visa was granted. The ETA differs from traditional visas in that there are no application forms to fill in and no visa label or stamp ivis2)
The Australian e600 Visitor Visa (subclass 600) is designed for people who are NOT on the ETA Eligible Country list, or people who wish to take a trip to Australia for longer than 3 months.
The Visitor Visa (subclass 600) allows you to stay in Australia for:
A stay of up to 12 months, or a shorter period, depending on the purpose of the visit and your personal circumstances; and
As a single or multiple entries to Australia.
The Visitor Visa (subclass 600) differs from the ETA in that it is not instantly processed, but it is available to a wider selection of countries and for up to 12 months, as opposed to the strict 3-month limitation that the ETA imposes.
The Visitor Visa usually takes approximately 20 days to be processed from the date that it is applied for. However, additional documentation may be required to complete your application which could significantly delay the process.
Please note: if you are planning a trip to Australia for 3 months or less and your passport is from one of the listed ETA Eligible Countries you should apply for an ETA Tourist Visa
