To apply for the Australian ETA, travelers from Canada will need to complete a quick online application form. You will need to enter some basic information, including the following:
- Biographical information (name, place of birth, etc.)
- Passport details
- Questions regarding security
- Travel plans
Travelers must fill out the Australian ETA application as accurately as possible because any errors, mistakes or missing information may cause processing delays, and can even lead to a denial of the visa waiver in some instances.
Once the traveler has entered all the required information on the application, they will then be prompted to make a payment using a valid debit or credit card before the form can be submitted for processing by the Australian Home Office.
Canadian travelers with dual nationality must ensure that they apply for a Australian visa waiver with the same passport that they intend to travel with, as the visa will be electronically linked to one individual passport.
This also means that in the event the traveler’s passport is lost, damaged or stolen and a new passport is required, it will be necessary to submit a new application for an Australian ETA from Canada.
