It is suspected that the ETA will be good for multiple entries. This means you will be able to enter and exit the United Kingdom as many times as you need before your ETA expires.
Will I be required to get an Electronic Travel Authorization if I'm from an EEA country?
If you are from one of the European Economic Area states, most likely you will not need to get an ETA in order to enter the United Kingdom. This is to allow economic competition and supply and demand to be met with neighboring countries.
