Off the topic.. Aussie's tourism is quite bad now due to the A$ being that high. I think that the Aussie gov should do away with this $20 fee, attract more ppls to Aus and spend.

I applied through JA Travel last time. Fuss-free and cheap.
Does applying through JA provides you with a confirmation of the ETA status? something like a proof of approval of the ETA?

You can actually apply at the airport when you check in. During check-in, they will ask if you have a visa, and if you don't, they will refer you to a counter where you can apply and get instant approval. It's only $18.

I am going to aussie for a week (work purpose).
As I willl be self booking the air tickets, what are the procedure to apply for the visa?


Any one can shed some lights ?

that's very interesting. if you are going to Australia to work you need a work visa. As visa processing and approval time varies, sometimes 1 week, sometimes 1 year, you should get this visa approved before you even commence travel and purchasing air tickets!

in this case your employer should apply the visa on your behalf.

Wow. Didnt check the forums for an entire week and came back to a rude shock. First to clarify, the travel agency is owned by my aunt. I assist my aunt on a freelance basis whenever I'm free from my other jobs. That's why for one fellow hwz reader who emailed me to do 11 visas altogether, I could have only done it at night.

As for the POSB acc part, I only have a POSB/UOB acc and our company's corporate acc is through OCBC. Our bank statements are gonna be in a mess if everyone start's transferring $10 to us no?

I was trying to help fellow hwz readers out by offering a service but it seems that it's not being appreciated at all. Yes, i am earning money from this too but it's a service that you're paying for.
If you do it for $5, I am sure you will have many customers since the market rate now appears to be ~$10.
