WHAT THIS VISA LETS YOU DO

The Electronic Travel Authority (Subclass 601) allows eligible passport holders to

    • make general business or employment enquiries

    • conduct activities as part of an official government visit

    • take part in a conference, trade fair or seminar. The organisers can't pay you to take part

    • You can't:

      • work for or provide services to a business or organisation based in Australia

      • sell goods or services directly to the public

      • If you want to do short-term work in Australia that isn't a business visitor activity, consider applying for a temporary work visa.

  • You can study or train for up to 3 months in total on this visa. But if your main reason for travelling to Australia is study, a student visa might be more appropriate.

  • You cannot work.

  • You will need a visa if you enter Australia during a cruise. If your cruise is a round trip cruise, the time you spend on the cruise counts as time spent in Australia - that is, we do not consider you have left Australia. A round trip cruise will not reset your stay period on your visa. Ask your cruise operator or travel agent if we consider your cruise to be a round trip cruise.
