ETA Australia Get Rejected: What to do?
Did your Australia ETA get rejected? Are you confused on what to do next?
Don’t worry, you still have the chance to lodge a new visa application to visit Australia.
We have summarised below what you can do if you’re facing this situation.
Why was my Australia ETA get rejected?
If you have been rejected for an ETA (Electronic Travel Authority), it could be because of one of the following reasons:
- You are not a citizen from countries eligible for eTA in Australia to enter the country.
- You are an ex-criminal who has been convicted of a crime in Australia (which, if you are the reader here, might be a small assumption).
- You have been refused entry to Australia, even if it is for a short stay. You should think more about why you’ve been rejected.
- You have no strong reason for your length of visit in Australia, and the ETA visa concerns people visiting Australia for more than 90 days.
- You are working for another employer with your holiday visa more than you’re working with a holidaymaker
- The government believes that you need to meet their health requirements. You may be more likely to spread disease, or there is doubt about your ability to cover your health costs while in the country.

What to do if I had my ETA denied?
There are specific steps you’d like to receive when you know that you had your ETA denied:
- When you receive a notification from the DHA (Department of Home Affairs), the reason for denial can vary, mainly from the circumstances we tell you above, including providing incorrect or incomplete information on the application.
- If you know that your ETA refusal is an error, you can contact the DHA to inquire about the decision and provide additional information to support your application.
- There is another option when your ETA has been denied, and you can apply for a Visitor Visa (Subclass 600), which must be applied on the paper.
- If you are given the opportunity, you can request a review of decisions to know more about your visa ETA visa refusal, and you can not ask for a review of decisions if the minister personally writes your refusal.
- If you are given the opportunity, seek a review from the AAT (Administrative Appeal Tribunal).
Or you might consider one: a migration agent to help your application process and represent you before the department of home affairs grants your documents.
It is also important to remember that Migration laws are constantly changing. That is why it’s best to consult with a registered migration agent soon after you receive the refusal notification for your ETA.

Do I still have the chance to lodge a new ETA or other Visitor Visa?
The answer is depending on your circumstances.
The most important thing you must do first is to make sure that you have met the requirements and you have all documents in hand to support your claim. If you don’t have stronger or more complete documents, there’s a chance that your Australia ETA or other Visitor Visa application might get rejected (again).
