When visiting Australia, it is highly likely that you will need some form of visa. If you are not travelling on an Irish passport we suggest you contact the your relevant embassy or consulate to make sure you get the right information about your visa requirements.
When entering Australia, you will need a full Irish passport valid for at least 6 months after the end of your trip, plus a pre-arranged entry authority known as an 'ETA'. Without such an authority, you will be refused entry at Australian Immigration. You can only apply for an ETA whilst outside of Australia.
ETA's are available for short term Tourists or Business Travelers. They replace the traditional visa label in your passport. ETA's allow a stay of up to 3 months in Australia on each visit over a 12 month period. Australian Sky can issue ETA's within minutes either over the telephone, or by post. Administration fee of 25 Euros per ETA.
Clients with criminal records cannot apply and should contact the Australian High Commission.
Your visa is issued immediately. As the visa is electronic you will not be given a stamp in your passport, however Australian Sky will provide written confirmation by email.
If you are entering Australia for another reason, then you will require a traditional visa in your passport available directly through the Australian High Commission.
Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) is processed at the discretion of the Australian Government from the information provided by the applicant. Australian Sky bears no responsibility for the rejection of any application and strongly advises against purchasing restricted or inflexible tickets prior to confirmation of the ETA. Australian Sky’s’ service charge is non-refundable regardless of the outcome of the application.
