Once the Japanese traveler receives their approved ETA authorization for Australia, they are required to print and take a copy with them when they travel as a printout may need to be presented along with the applicant’s passport at the Australian border in order to gain entry into the country.
Travelers who will be arriving in Australia from Japan by air should note that they will be required to complete an Incoming Passenger Card on the plane, which is used to make customs and quarantine declarations. It is also used to make declarations regarding cash that is above a certain amount and to list the address in Australia where the Japanese traveler plans to stay.
Japanese ETA Australia holders should note that they are required to inform the Australian Home Office immediately if their email address or phone number change while they are in the country. It should also be noted that if the traveler’s passport is lost, stolen or damaged while they are in Australia, they will be required to obtain a new travel authorization in order to visit the country.
An Australian ETA visa waiver is valid for a maximum stay of 90 consecutive days in the country per entry and can be used for up to a period of 12 months. Applicants are allowed multiple entries into Australia using an ETA.
Those traveling from Japan to Australia with a family should note that each child will be required to have their own individually approved ETA if they are not included on their parent or guardian’s passport.
Japanese visitors planning to visit the country for purposes other than tourism or business, such as to undertake employment or study, are required to apply for a visa from an Australian embassy or consulate in Japan.
