Under Australia's universal visa system, all visitors to Australia must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia.

There are many visa options available to people wishing to visit Australia. The appropriate visa option will depend, amongst other things, on the person's purpose for visiting Australia. There are 34 countries eligible to apply for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA), which requires a small fee, no formal application and no visa label or stamp in the passport. If you are eligible for an ETA, it is recommended that you select that option.
