I'm guessing here - does she already have a valid ETA?

It does sound like what on any other visa would be a condition 8503 No Further Stay. Your mum should call the DIAC on 131881 to clarify.

You say your dad has a new one, so are they already here? And did she apply for it within AUstralia or outside? You may need to contact DIAC for clarification.
They are at the airport in germany as we speak ! They applied for the ETA in germany a couple of days ago....very weird. I hope they wont cause any dramas.

Was she applying for an ETA while already holding an existing ETA? So effectively applying to renew it? Or was she applying from scratch, without one already covering her?
It sound as if she already had one and they refused another one, thus leaving her with the original expiry date. If thats not it, I'm stumped. If they get no problems when entering the country, her ETA will clearly be currently valid, but once they get here I'd take them to your local DIAC office and find out exactly what the position is.

My parents were in march and obviously had a current ETA, since my mum has no idea about how visas etc work, she went to the travel agent, booked their flights and I believe the travel agent tried to get a new ETA for them....I dont know, I asked her why she applied for a new visa, she just didnt know that her first visa was still valid...Im sure it will be all good.

That's probably what it was. Perhaps you can't get an ETA while you still have an extant one. Do make sure she knows when the one she has expires though, won't you?

You can get them to overlap. I applied for a new one once when mine still had a month left on it, and had no problem.My mate has done a similar thing. Maybe there is some reason for a no further stay clause?
Rubblediekatz, keep us posted when you find the answer, please

When you apply on-line and the system recognises you have valid ETA already, it asks you do you wish to proceed and cancel the existing one - if you tick no to that, no new ETA would be issued and maybe this message would come up. So you just need to be sure that they did get a new approved ETA in case the old one is still in force and expires before they travel.

Thanks for that Tony - yes I do remember there being a questino about whether you really want to replace the current ETA.
Too late to do it before they travel, it seems they only applied 2 days before travel, and when the question was posted they were at the airport! We shall have to wait and see what happens when they get here........
