Record figures for Australia tourism

A recent report has shown that 2007 was a record year for tourist coming to Australia, with 5.6 million travellers visiting the country. The success is a testament to both the appeal of Australia and the efficiency of the Australian tourist visa scheme.
11 April 2008
The official figures were released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and show that international tourist arrivals to Australia increased by two per cent in 2007, reaching 5.6 million visitors arriving on Australian tourist visas. Australia's status as one of the world's most popular destinations was also benefited by the World Economic Forum's Travel & Tourism Report, in which the country was voted in the top four out of 130 countries in the category of most competitive destinations in the world.

This tourism demand comes as no surprise, thanks to the great reputation of the country, but visitors have been well served by the Australian tourist visa system, and particularly the ETA (Electronic Travel Authority) visa. The Australian ETA visa currently stands as the most efficient method to gain access to the country, granting eligible citizens immediate access to an Australian travel visa.
