Holiday Enquiry

For people visiting Australia for holidays, tourism, recreation or to see family and friends, you will need a holiday visa on an Irish passport.  If you have passport of another nationality we can advise re holiday visas.

Visas for Australia

Irish passport holders require a valid passport and visa for travel to Australia. We can issue an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) for holiday visa to Australia. We can also advise on working holiday visas or business visas for Australia or New Zealand. Please see below for further details on each option. For all destinations a valid passport is required usually with a minimum 6 months validity from the date of returning home. It is your responsibility to check and obtain visas for other countries other than Australia.

Other nationalities; please check with your embassy who will advise you of your requirements. We will give you whatever visa/passport information is available to us at time of booking.

Australia ETA (Visitor Holiday Visa for Australia)

This is called an ETA (Electronic Travel Authority) and differs from traditional visas in that there are no application forms to fill in and no visa label or stamp in the passport. The ETA is available to passport holders from Australian Government specified countries and regions. To apply for an ETA (Visitor), you must be outside Australia and hold a passport issued by an ETA-eligible country or region (e.g. Ireland).


An ETA (Visitor) Visa allows a person to stay in Australia for up to 3 months on each arrival within 12 months from the date of the granted visa.


To process an ETA, we need the following: 

  • Name as detailed on your passport Male/Female
  • Passport number
  • Date of birth
  • Date of issue / expiry
  • Place of issue
  • Arrival date

Please note that all passengers including children and infants should have their own passports.

Price - €20


Work in Australia is not permitted. The holder must depart within the validity of the visitor visa.
