Travel Documents & Entry requirements

Australia: Beachside Wildlife Adventure‎ > ‎ 


A visa is required in the form of an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) to travel to Australia from the USA, Canada, or the UK. If you are traveling from another country, please consult the Australian Embassy in your country. 

You must obtain an Australian ETA (issued for U.S Passport Holders) in advance of your departure online. It usually costs $20. This will be electronically linked to your passport and is required upon entry into Australia.  Note that you must download the Australia ETA app on your phone to complete the electric visa application. Download it here:  Apple Store or  Google Play. A separate application for each traveler needs to be completed. A step-by-step process can be found here.

 Australia does not authorize assistance in the visa process. 

Once applied for, the Australian ETA is generally issued within minutes. More information can be found here


If you do not have a passport it is important to apply for one as soon as possible. It often takes four to six weeks to process the paperwork for a passport (and even longer during the peak travel season of March to August). For questions about obtaining or renewing your passport (American citizens) you can click here.

If you have a passport, please note it needs to be valid for up to 6 months after your scheduled departure date. 

It is also important that you have at least one completely blank page (with no stamps or visas) in your passport. This is a requirement for entry into many countries. 

If you are a U.S. citizen and need assistance with obtaining a new passport, we recommend working with G3 Visas and Passports to make the process smooth and easy.

*Note: Make several photocopies of your passport. Leave a copy at home with your family and carry a copy with you at all times when you are overseas. If you should lose your passport, having a copy will speed up the process of replacing it.
