How long can a visitor stay with an Australia ETA Visa?
Post on April 16, 2019
Australia ETA Visa is a temporary visa, which is granted for maximum 12 months or up to the valid period of the passport. The grant period is started from the date it is granted. Traveler with Australia ETA visa can travel outside Australia and return as many times as you want while the visa is valid.
The Australia ETA visa is granted with multiple entry facility. The Australia ETA visa holder may enter Australia as many times as he/she wants during the validity period. But he/she cannot stay more than 3-months at a time after each entry.
Australia ETA visa holder can't stay in Australia longer by extending this visa. If the traveler has any other substantive Australian visa and Australia ETA visa when you enter into Australia, you other substantive will be considered for your entry, not your Australia ETA Visa. If your other substantive visa is ceased or expired during your visit to Australia, only then your Australia ETA visa will come into effect. But do not forget that the 3 months Australia ETA stay period still begins, when you enter Australia.
