Australia Entry Requirements

Every visitor to Australia must have a passport, Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) or non-electronic label visa, proof of onward or return ticket, and sufficient funds. An ETA or non-electronic label visa is required for tourist or business stays of up to 3 months. An ETA is an electronically stored authority to travel to Australia. Application forms are available from participating travel agencies or online http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/visitors.htm or by contacting an Australian visa office.

The Australian Government has developed a new traveler-friendly website, TravelSECURE, to help you to navigate the security checks at the airport quickly and easily and to ensure you are adequately prepared for your trip. TravelSECURE is an easy-to-use resource that consolidates traveler and transport security information, videos and fact sheets in one easy-to-find place. The site includes information about prohibited items, passenger and baggage screening, and liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) restrictions. Travelers will also find recommendations about traveling with children, laptops, medicines and sports equipment. Key pages from TravelSECURE have been translated into Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish to ensure greater accessibility.

It is the responsibility of each passenger to carry the proper travel documentation and to meet the entry conditions of each country to be flown from, into or over (in transit).
