Do Hong Kong citizens need a visa or ETA to visit Australia?

For residents of Hong Kong armed with valid passports and planning a trip to Australia, obtaining a valid entry document required by the Australian authorities is a must.

The bright side? Hong Kong passport holders embarking on a journey of tourism or business to Australia, you won’t need a conventional paper visa. In this case, applying for an ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) is an easier option to start your adventure. This electronic travel authorization is not technically a visa, but works similarly. However, you can apply 100% online and the requirements are much less rigid than the traditional visa process.

How to apply for your ETA now with us?

Ready to embark on an Aussie escapade? Let's make your ETA application a breeze with our streamlined services. Just follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Begin by filling out an online form with your personal details. Ensuring accuracy to match your passport is essential to avoid any visa hiccups.

  • Step 2: Our quick and efficient service is what sets us apart. Double-check the provided information and then choose your preferred visa delivery speed.

  • Step 3: Payment time! Use your trusty debit or credit card to finalize the process and submit your application.

Benefits of the ETA for Hong Kong citizens

The ETA offers the following benefits over a visa:

  • Convenience: Applying for the ETA is quick and convenient. The application can be completed online, and the document is typically processed within minutes. We strongly recommend you put your trust in the best hands.

  • Multiple entries: The ETA allows multiple entries into Australia within 12 months, allowing visitors to come and go as they please for business or tourism purposes.

  • Short processing time: The ETA is typically processed within minutes of the application submission, allowing visitors to plan their travel to Australia with minimal delay.

  • Validity: The ETA is valid for 12 months from the date of issue or until the passport expires, whichever date comes first. This provides visitors ample time to plan and undertake multiple trips to Australia.

  • No stamp or label required: The ETA is electronically linked to the traveler's passport, eliminating the need for a physical visa stamp or label.

  • Cost-effective: Choosing the ETA is a cost-effective way to apply for an Australian travel document, with a lower application fee than other visa types.

  1. Ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your arrival date in Australia.
