The parts and questions of the ETA or eVisitor application form for Australia

First of all, before you start filling in the application form for an eTA or eVisitor for Australia, make sure you have your passport and the passports of the people you wish to register as well. You will need the information in these passports to complete the application.
Here are the details of the different parts and questions of the form and the information you need to fill in:

  • Contact details: In the first part of the eVisitor application form for Australia, you will need to enter your contact details. This is where communications regarding your visa application will be made. This includes a telephone number and a valid email address.
  • Travel details: In this part of the form, you will need to fill in the purpose of your trip and your expected date of arrival in Australia. If you do not yet know your exact arrival date, you can give an approximate date. You should also remember to indicate the date of your next arrival if you wish to travel to Australia more than once on a single eVisitor or eTA visa. Remember that these arrival dates must be within the validity period of your permit. In this section, you will also need to enter the purpose of each trip you will make from that destination.
  • Identity and passport details: The third part of the eVisitor application form will concern your passport and identity details. Please remember to fill in the details on your passport carefully. A simple mistake can lead to a refusal by the Australian authorities. If you are unsure how to answer any of these items, please refer to the guidance on the form. Please also fill in your full name and date of birth here.
  • Travel History: At this stage of the form, you will be asked to fill in some additional information if you have made a previous trip to Australia. In particular, you will be asked to fill in the visa grant number or visa label number which you will find on your previous visas. If you have travelled to Australia several times in the past and have more than one Visa Grant Number, you can enter the one you want. If you are unable to find this number, you can leave this field blank. However, this may cause a slight delay in processing your application.
  • Basic questions: Finally, the last part of the eVisitor or eTA application form for Australia will ask you some general questions. These questions are simply to check that you meet the requirements for an eVisitor for Australia. The eVisitor for Australia will only be issued to you if you can honestly answer all of these questions with "no".

At the end of the eVisitor application form, you will also have the opportunity to add travellers. This will allow you to re-apply for travellers travelling with you such as friends or relatives. Up to 10 travellers can be registered simultaneously.

Is it possible to obtain an urgent eTA/eVisitor?

The ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) for Australia and the eVisitor for Australia are electronic documents that allow eligible travellers to visit these countries without needing a traditional visa. As regards the possibility of obtaining these authorisations urgently :

For the ETA, there is no standard emergency procedure. However, in exceptional cases, such as medical emergencies or critical humanitarian situations, it may be possible to speed up the process. This will depend on the circumstances and the discretion of the immigration officer. It is advisable to contact the Australian Embassy or Consulate to discuss your situation. Emergency ETAs are rare and subject to strict criteria.

There is no standard emergency process for the eVisitor for Australia. However, in exceptional situations, such as a medical emergency or compelling humanitarian reasons, it is possible to contact the Australian Department of Home Affairs to discuss your situation. They may consider expediting your application if urgent circumstances warrant. Similarly, emergency eVisitor applications are rare and subject to strict criteria.

It is therefore advisable to submit your application as far in advance of your trip as possible to avoid last-minute complications. Make sure you take into account the specific requirements of each country and allow enough time for your ETA or eVisitor application to be processed.
