It can take up to 3 business days to process an Australian eVisitor visa application submitted by a British citizen.
Some eVisitors are processed sooner, while in rare cases it can take a little longer. Processing times can be affected by the current volume of applications received and if any errors were identified on the British applicant’s form. National holidays and weekends can also impact the total processing time that may be required.
Travelers from the UK are encouraged to plan ahead for their intended visit to Australia and submit an application at least 7 days before their date of arrival.
UK citizens that have been approved for an Australian eVisitor visa will need to take a printed copy of their visa with them when they travel. It must be presented to the Australian Border Force officials when prompted in order to gain entry into the country.
The Australian eVisitor visa for British citizens is valid for 12 months and allows multiple entries into the country. The maximum length of stay during each visit is 3 months.
