There could be a number of reasons why Australian immigration will not approve this visa, so our suggestion is to contact them by following these instructions.
The Australian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur has a new, dedicated email address for all matters relating to ETA applications.
ETA Applications referred to the Australian High Commission
If your application for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) was lodged online (via www.eta.immi.gov.au/ETAS3/etas) or through a travel agent and you received a system message advising you to “refer to Embassy”, you will need to send the following MANDATORY information to the Department.
ETA Application Requirements
- Completed ETA Additional Information Request Form (click here to download the form); and
- A copy of the ETA applicant’s passport biodata page (the page with the passport holder’s details and photo) and passport observation page; and
- A copy of the screenshot of the ETA referral screen (if available).
The Department also requires you to provide additional information to determine that you genuinely intend to visit Australia for tourism or business visitor purposes. You are required to provide:
1. A statement and itinerary regarding your intended stay in Australia. Please include evidence of any arrangements made (if any).

4. Provide details of all family, friends and contacts in Australia. Please include their full names and dates of birth. Please indicate if they are Australian citizens or permanent residents. If not, please indicate visa status and reason for their stay in Australia.
5. Evidence of your employment. This should be:
a. A statement from the employer that indicating your annual salary and that you have approved leave for your travel to Australia, or
b. If you and/or your sponsor are self-employed, business registration documents and financial records for the business (such as bank statements).
If you are not employed, please provide other evidence of your financial capacity or evidence from the person who supports you (including evidence of your relationship with that person).
6. Bank statements showing at least the previous two months’ transactions. Please include all bank accounts that you and/or your sponsor hold.
