This question already has an answer here:

I received a email saying that I would need to check again within 12 hours. However when I check my ETA status at

I got this:

You have a current ETA to travel to Australia.

The Australian Electronic Travel Authority System has reported the following data and conditions apply to your ETA:

Expiry Date    05 JUN 2013
Period of Stay     3 Months
Number of Entries  Multiple
Employment Conditions  Employment Prohibited

The Expiry Date of the ETA is the latest date on which you may enter Australia with this ETA. The Period of Stay is the longest time you may spend in Australia on any one visit. The Number of Entries is the number of times you may enter Australia with this ETA.

Am I approved or not?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Yes, you have been approved.

Odds are, emails get batched up, so by the time the email was sent out, you were already approved. And as you've seen on the site, it told you that it was approved for entry.

Note that while the expiry date is 5 June 2013, naturally if you enter earlier as planned, you can only stay for 3 months at a time.

Long story short? You have a current ETA to travel to Australia.
