Provision of Service
Upon payment, the Service will be delivered to you within the time frame provided for in the Service description. However, in certain cases this may take longer, depending on the complexity of the Client's Profile, or due to changes in legislation or procedures.
The Service to be provided to the Client may vary from time to time.
* Upon completing the ETA application form provided on Travel Visa Australia, your request for an ETA will be submitted instantly. The system used for issuing an ETA via this site interfaces with and checks data from other Australian Government systems. Your ETA grant is subject to approval from the Australian Government.
In the majority of instances your ETA will be processed and granted within minutes. However, if any details have been entered incorrectly or are incomplete, your application may be delayed.
In some instances, an ETA visa applicant may receive a 'referral' message from the Australian High Commission. In this instance, you will be contacted through the client area and will be required to provide additional information in order to proceed with your application. Please note that if any request for further details is made by Travel Visa Australia, your ETA application may not be processed until the requested information is received.
** Visitor and Business Entrant Short Validity ETAs are valid for 12 months from the date of grant, or for the life of the passport if it is less than 12 months.
Prior to making payment for the ETA, you will have an opportunity to review all the details you have provided on your screen and make changes if necessary. If you have made an error, it is important that you correct it before proceeding. Once you have confirmed the details, you will be prompted to enter your credit card details for the non-refundable service charge. If you find out later that you have made a mistake, you can either make a new application (and incur another service charge) or contact your nearest Australian visa office.
In the event that you have an existing ETA or you are in Australia at the time we attempt to process the ETA, the fee you have paid to Travel Visa Australia for another ETA is non-refundable. In such circumstances, we will issue you with confirmation of your current ETA status and the charge is applied to recover the use of our system resources.
Please do not arrange any travel to Australia until you have received email notification that your ETA request has been approved by the Australian Government. Travel Visa Australia takes no responsibility for changes to a client's travel plans due to ETA processing.
Upon completing the EVV application form provided on Travel Visa Australia, your profile will be reviewed by one of our migration consultants who will then submit your electronic application directly with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). Your EVV grant is subject to approval from the Australian Government.
In some cases, it is possible for an EVV to be processed and granted within minutes. However, if any details have been entered incorrectly or are incomplete, your application may be delayed. In other instances, you may be required to provide additional documentation, such as bank statements, evidence of employment and travel itinerary after the application has been lodged. In these cases, processing can take up 2-10 working days after the documentation has been provided and in the event that your application is referred to an overseas post for verification, there will be further delay.
An EVV is valid for 12 months from the date of grant and permits you to stay in Australia for 3 months from the date of entry.
Prior to making payment for the EVV, you will have an opportunity to review all the details you have provided on your screen and make changes if necessary. If you have made an error, it is important that you correct it before proceeding. Once you have confirmed the details, you will be prompted to enter your credit card details for the non-refundable service charge. If you find out later that you have made a mistake, you can either make a new application (and incur another service charge) or contact your nearest Australian visa office.
In the event that you have an existing visa or you are in Australia at the time we attempt to process the EVV, the fee you have paid to Migration Expert for another EVV is non-refundable. In such circumstances, we will issue you with confirmation of your current EVV status and the charge is applied to cover costs for the use of our system resources.
Please do not arrange any travel to Australia until you have received email notification that your EVV request has been approved by the Australian Government. Travel Visa Australia takes no responsibility for changes to a client's travel plans due to visa processing.
