ETA Mobile App Mobilised!

On 5 April 2022, a legislative instrument was released that amended the Migration Regulations. 

Making an application for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) has previously been done using an online application process on the website supported by the Department. 

The Department has now formally introduced the mobile app AustralianETA and is pushing for all applications for ETAs to be made using the app. The AustralianETA app can be downloaded onto a mobile device.

If you are an ETA passport holder, you will now be able to provide biometrics using the app and your device, at the time you make your 601 ETA visa application.

Here is a list of countries that typically are allowed to be granted ETAs:

  • Andorra
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Brunei
  • Canada
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Hong Kong (SAR of China)
