The Australian ETA arrangements provide significant benefits to travelers wishing to visit Australia. See below for a few examples:
The ETA provides a seamless process for providing authority to travel to Australia from places where airline tickets are obtained.
Faster processing at airports.
Airlines benefit by utilizing computer systems to verify that travelers have authority to enter Australia.
This saves airline staff time at the check-in counter and reduces their likelihood of transporting improperly documented passengers.
The Australian Government benefits by gaining access to data on all travelers to Australia.
This supports maintenance of Australian border integrity by law enforcement and health authorities.
