    What is an ETA?

    An ETA (Electronic Travel Authority) is an authorization to enter Australian territory, and is electronically linked to your passport. It is for short term stays for tourism or business visitor activities.
    Business visitor activities do not include work. If you want to do short-term, highly specialised, non-ongoing work in Australia, you can apply for a Temporary Work (Short Stay Activity) visa (Subclass 400) in the government site. Read More

Often there is confusion between ETA VISA to Australia and visa eVisitor. The features and conditions are the same. The only difference is in the nationality of the visa applicant (see image below). At the time you submit the visa application, you should choose one of them depending on the nationality stated in your passport.
