Red face 3 Year Exclusion Period

Hello. I had a Australian ETA visa for tourism that I extended onshore for another 3 months. Then I ran out of funds to fly out. Loaned the flight money to an Australian friend who repaid me too slowly so that by the time of departure I didn't have enough for the flight.

Immigration graciously gave me a bridging visa with permission to work to earn the airfare. That was the good news.

The bad news was I was told I would be banned for 3 years from temporary visas but not permanent visas. An immigration official at the airport pulled me aside and made sure I understood that. The ban ends Septemeber 30, 2011. That was my 6th trip to Australia as I love it there.

Now that I have this black mark, on October 1 if I apply for an ETA will I be rejected? While the 3 years exclusion may have passed since I departed, this is all written down. Will I need to apply for a regular tourist visa from Washington ( I live in the USA)? Will I have to go through alll the hoops like proof of return ticket, health insurance, bank statements with "adequate" funds, etc. How hard have I made things for myself? Thanks.

No one can tell you if they will deny the ETA straight off but I'd be inclined to think they would from previous posts on the same subject. And yes as a previous overstayer you would likely need to prove you have the means to support yourself and then to leave the country at the end of your visa because they would deem you to be a 'risk'.
