  1. The first step asks you to offer your basic information (including passport id and address). You must choose the type of ETA and the processing time as well.

  2. The second step will require you to pay for the service and it'll also ask you to check the information you gave in step one. As for the review, all the information you provide must be valid. Keep in mind that if there's a single error in your online form after it's sent, you won't be able to fix it and you'll have to repeat the process.
