Visa/ETA for US visitors to Australia

Jump to last reply

I didn't know they required a visa until I tried to check in online for my flight tomorrow night.

So my understanding is the ETA is issued almost instantly.

I Googled and found what appears to be an official Australian govt. site:

http://www.eta.immi.gov.au/ETAAusXEn.html

I went through the application, paid $20AUD and then it says they have to check with Australian immigration and for me to check back in 12 hours.

I sent this application at around 6:30 PM Pacific. My flight is in about 23 hours!

Has anyone encountered any issues getting an ETA, especially at the last minute?
