Do you plan to go to Australia for vacation or
for a business trip? You will certainly need an electronic travel authority. It
is an automatic system that determines the eligibility of visitors into
Australian territory under the new regulations. It requires the same
information as the paper version.
What is ETA Australia?
Before applying online for an ETA australia, you should know its real
definition. It is an electronic visa issued by the Australian Government. While
some nationalities can apply for this visa, it is not the case for some EU and
other countries nationals. None the less, they still can apply for an ETA from special travel agencies under certain
conditions. The ETA visa is for people who want to do tourism in Australia or
who go to the country for a professional reason. The business trips concerned include
conferences, negotiations, professional appointments and training. The ETA is
valid for a year from the date of obtaining the visa. And it allows you to stay
3 months maximum in Australia, with free entry and exit in the territory.
There are 3 types of ETA visa:
valid 12 months for several visits of 3 months maximum each stay.
Short: also valid 12 months for several visits of 3 months maximum each stay.
Long: valid for all the life of the passport for several visits of 3 months
maximum each stay.
Conditions for Obtaining
an ETA Australia
You are eligible if you come from one of the 32
countries including, inter alia, Germany, United Kingdom, United States, Italy,
Monaco, Netherlands, Malaysia, France and Japan. After receiving your ETA, you
can directly go to Australia as many times as you want for the coming 12 months
as long as each visit lasts 3 months or less. It is important to notice that you
cannot work while in Australia, but can participate in business visitor
activities including contractual negotiations, and attending conferences. Of
course, you are not allowed to study or undergo training for more than 3 months
at a time.
Moreover, ETA Australia visitors have to be
free from … Read More
The Company and Products
Global Resorts Network is a
travel business that has existed since 1986, selling discount luxury travel.
The product is a membership that has been sold, up until recently, only to
customers who attended a personal sales presentation. This membership enables
the clients to book week-long vacations at time-shares and resorts around the
world at discount rates, ranging from $298 to $798 per week. The Gold
membership is $1495 (for three years) and the Platinum is $2995 (lifetime); the
only other difference being that the Gold members pay a slightly higher price
per week stay.
The Program and Compensation
There are currently three
approved marketing systems that you can get involved with to run your online business
for Global Resorts Network. The first two are standard marketing systems used
to promote your website and the third is a Reverse Funnel System that is a
funded proposal system. This means basically that the prospect must pay a fee
to get any information about the business in order to weed out non-serious
buyers. This was revolutionary when it debuted, but has now been copied by
others in the direct sales home business industry. After joining at the Gold or
Platinum level you then need to pay a $100 Global Resorts Network site fee and
$29.95 to $300 per month, depending on which marketing system you choose.
Advertising costs are not included, so this will add to your monthly cost.
Global Resorts Network uses a perpetual one-up compensation plan, which means
that your first sale is passed up to your sponsor to activate your first level.
After that you receive a commission on each sale and your sponsor also receives
a commission for that sale, and so on.
This company seems to provide a
good quality product that has a 20-year track record of providing discount
luxury travel. However, by shifting their sales to network marketing they have
dramatically increased their memberships, decreasing the available inventory.
And as ever-increasing numbers of clients utilize their member benefits, the
quality of the product diminishes since there is a relatively finite number … Read More
Luxury travel is a market which,
whilst although affected by the downturn in the worldwide financial market, is
still one which prospers. A large percentage of the people affected by the
recession would not have opted for luxury travel anyway. The reality is that
many of those who had enough money to utilise luxury travel services will still
be in a relatively comfortable today and thus remain in the market. The Luxury
Travel Fair held in London each year is one of the best opportunities in Europe
for those involved in the Luxury Travel market to showcase their products and
to reach new customers.
The London Luxury Travel Fair is
held at the Olympia Venue in London and is accessible by ticket only. Tickets
can be purchased in the door but they are also available in advance. If you
need convincing to attend then you will be sold by the promise of accessing all
of the premier travel products in the UK under one roof, as well as products
from companies from around the world. The show is not just an opportunity to
walk around and browse brochures, there are also interactive speeches,
celebrity speakers such as David Shukman from the BBC and an international food
market where celebrity chefs help you to experience the luxury foods you could
experience in different parts of the world.
The luxury fair runs for 4 days,
although you should be able to cover all bases in one day. If you need a rest
between scouting the various features you can have a drink in the island themed
bar or shop for Christmas gifts at Spirit of Christmas Fair which is at the
same location. Olympia is also in the centre of London (close to the Earls
Court area) and is a great base also for London’s main attractions and museums,
hence combining visiting the exhibition with some sightseeing might mean a
chance to make better use of your time in London.
There are some other excellent
travel fairs and exhibitions which you might also be interested in and these
include Monaco Boat Show, … Read More
