Minor moment of panic at the ticket counter trying to get a boarding pass when they said I need a visa before I can check in to the flight to Australia.
Turns out the visa "application" process was just filling out a web form on my phone, and it was "approved" immediately. I was worried I was gonna have to wait a full business day or something but guess not!
Also kind of weird is the ticket agent just had to check a box that said I have the visa, and that person would be fined $5000 if they were wrong. Seems like not the most ideal way to enforce that but okay.
@aaronpk Had that problem on my first visit to Australia but it was long enough ago that getting to the web form from inside the airport was a bit of a challenge. I think that was when I was still using a Neo Freerunner; whatever it was, I remember thinking that most people in that situation would have been out of luck at the time. Now browsing the web on your mobile device from anywhere is routine...
