How To Apply Australia Visa at Home With Only RM20?

Monday, October 19, 2015
Update 11 Aug 2017: A friend of mine has visited Perth this early July. She applied through the website I introduced here. No issue going in and coming out from Australia. Still the same answer, if you are worrying this is a scam, DO NOT apply!

Update 9 Jun 2017: These 2 years, I have received tons of comments and IMs, as well as email asking me is this a scam? My answer is still the same!!!! For me, this is NOT a scam!!!!! Again, I would like to highlight the following:

1. This is NOT an advertorial post. I share my personal experience how I apply my visa to AUS.
2. Commentors who asked if this is a scam under this post have no update if they have issue even though I tried to follow-up. So, I can only assume they do not have issue.
3. No complaint/feedback at all from readers telling me, they couldn't enter AUS after applying visa through the agent. The only feedback I have gotten is the application fee has increased from RM20 to RM30 now.
4. DO NOT apply, if you really worry and think this is a scam. As said, I didn't face any issue to enter AUS, and no feedback saying they couldn't enter AUS. So, if you do not trust it, DO NOT apply. Head to the Embassy and apply it is the safest way.

If you encounter any problem to enter AUS because of the visa is not valid, please please please let me know so I can update here and avoid others to apply through the agent in future. 

Update 21 Nov 2015: Received emails, IMs and comments, possibly you are also worried if this company is valid. FYI, I went in Perth on 14 Nov and return to KL on 20 Nov. No issue happened. So, go ahead reading the guide below on applying Australia Visa with only RM20! If you still need helps, do not hesitate to shot me a message!

Despite of weak currency, we still love travelling. I have booked tickets to Perth, Australia which will be in the coming November. In this post, I am going to show you how to apply Australia Visa at home. Guess what? It is only RM20!

It is not the first time I will be travelling to Australia; however, the first time to settle visa myself. I have been asking around on how my friends apply. One of them applied via walk-in. Another one applied via online. Googled it and found iAdventure Escape Travel. I was shocked that it is only RM20/person! Remember my parents paid RM50 last time and I checked the embassy website saying to have AUD150. It is unbelievable cheap! I admit I thought it was a scam; so checked their review and also WhatsApp for inquiry. Finally, I decided to take it. Below are steps to apply Australia Visa at home.


Step 2: Click “Menu” and click “Online Application”

Step 3: Fill in your details. Make sure all are correct before submitting. Click “Submit ETA” at bottom. **Date format is DD-MM-YYYY

Step 4: After submitting, the website will direct you to “Payment Details”. You can choose to bank transfer/pay via paypal/pay via credit card. Pay with your preferred method. You must send your payment details to the agency’s email at eta@iae.my

Step 5: Wait for your visa approval. I received mine within half day. Meanwhile, my parents’ received within an hour upon payment!


Hope this simple guide help the miserable one. I have compared few agencies, iAdventure Escape Travel is the cheapest! Their response was fast too when I asked them questions. If you are going to Australia or you know one who is going to Australia, don’t forget to share them the awesome news of applying Australia Visa in such a cheap price.

    1. I don't really get your question. The visa starts from the date you got your visa approved. And will be ending one year later. However, you are only allowed to stay for 3 months per visit. Let me know if this is not what you want to know. =)

  27. Hi Sin Yee, thanks for the post. May I know if you've gone to Australia yet and did the ETA work? I'm looking for evidence of a real/credible person actually being able to enter Australia with the ETA from iAdventure before I apply.

  28. Hi Sin Yee,

    I also apply the ETA/Visa through the same agent, IADVENTURE ESCAPE PTE. LTD. Firstly, I m like is it a scam?
    The price is so cheap and the response also very fast. Still waiting for my wife ETA, mine and my son already approved. I hope there will be smooth process to enter Sydney with this ETA. I went to Perth a few years ago and applied the visa tru Australian Immigration website and it is quite expensive compared to iadventure. To share with you, we will fly to Sydney on 4th Dec and on 5th we will fly to Queenstown New Zealand.....

  29. Hi Sin Yee,
    Good to get some assurance that the site is not a scam. Just applied and the cost now is RM26 (Ringgit getting weaker and weaker).

    1. Hi Yee Pee, to be honest, so far, I have not received any complain from reader telling that they get blocked when entering AUS. Even there are people commented under this post asking is this a scam, but when I seek for feedback from them, they have no reply at all.

      In addition, this is NOT an advertorial post. I share my personal experience how I apply my visa to AUS, and also update on the very top place saying I have no issue entering AUS. So, no matter how many times/people asking me if this is a scam, my answer is still the same. Unless, if there is someone confirm he/she was cheated by the agent, I will definitely state on the blog.

      Hope this clear your doubt. :)

  35. thanks for this post. have also applied through here, if I don't reply further means no problems. I'm travelling next month!
