ETA-TAIWAN NATIONALS

Overview

The ETA visa service is for Taiwan and British Nationals (overseas) ONLY. For other nationalities, please see: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/601-

ETA lets you enter Australia for up to three months at a time as a tourist or for business visitor purposes. You are also permitted to study in Australia for up to 3 months in some circumstances.

You might be able to get this ETA if:  

  • you are a  national of Taiwan/UK and holding Taiwanese/British Nationals (Overseas) passport (must not purport to be an official or diplomatic passport)
  • you are travelling to Australia as a tourist or for business visitor purposes
  • you hold an eligible passport.

Reason for stay

You can apply if you are travelling to Australia as a tourist or for business purposes.

Tourist activities include holidays, recreation or seeing family and friends.

Business visitor activities include:

  • making general business or employment enquiries
  • investigating, negotiating, signing or reviewing a business contract
  • activities carried out as part of an official government-to-government visit
  • participating in conferences, trade fairs or seminars, as long as you are not being paid by the organisers for your participation.

Business activities do not include short-term work. If you want to work in Australia, you can apply for a Temporary Work (Short Stay Specialist) visa (Subclass 400).

Please Note: Taiwanese compatriot passports and official/diplomatic passports are not acceptable travel documents for travel to Australia. Taiwanese compatriot passports do not show the Personal Identity Number in the bio-data page of the passport.

However, if Taiwanese compatriot passport holders have evidence of a right of re-entry to the country of origin or a third country they can use their compatriot passports to travel to Australia.

If you hold a Taiwanese compatriot passport and have evidence of a right of re-entry to the country of origin or to a third country, you need to apply for a Visitor visa (subclass 600). See: www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/600- or the AVAC website above.
