Tourist activities include holidays, recreation or seeing family and friends.
Business visitor activities include:
* Countries and territories whose citizens need an ETA to travel to Australia
|France||Germany||Greece||Hong Kong (SAR of China)||Hungary||Iceland|

|South Korea||Spain||Sweden||Switzerland||The Netherlands||United Kingdom - British Citizen|

After you have applied
In most cases, you will be informed of the result of your application immediately. Some applications can need extra processing.
So, you should apply for your ETA at least two weeks before you travel.
If your ETA is approved, you will be given a confirmation for your records by email.
