Australia ETA question

Hi guys,

I am a Canadian citizen and about to visit Australia in July to visit a friend. I applied my eTA online today and it was approved, but when I see the print out it says "No work - business visitor activity only" instead of "tourist". but I am 100% sure I applied for tourist. do I need to re-apply the ETA again? o

It's fine. My ETA from the USA says the same thing. Enjoy your trip!

It should be fine, I believe it says that since you can use the visa for business visitor activities such as attending meetings, as long as you aren't using it to work for an employer in Australia.

It is fine. That is what it says on both of my children's ETAs too. And we're from the US.
