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.
