They are easy to get at the airport. I have had it a couple of time when I have got to the check in desk and they have told me my visa has run out. They wait 5 mins while I run over to the info desk and by a new one - as it is an online update system.
My advice.... do it before you get to the airport !!!
There was no charge last July for visas for the 4 of us to go over to Oz. Easy to do on line.
