What to do when you change your passport after obtaining an ETA approval?

What should you do if you change your passport after ETA approval?
 
The ETA depends on the validity of your passport since these two documents are electronically linked with each other.  Hence, when a passport loses purpose/validity/effect, or if it gets past its expiry date, the ETA loses its validity, too.   If you obtain a new passport, you must apply for a new ETA visa too.
 
When applying for a new Australian ETA, don’t forget to input your new passport details— or everything that has been changed upon your passport renewal (from address, to document number, down to its validity period). Otherwise, your ETA Australia application will be rejected by the system. One of the common mistakes amongst applicants is they put they old passport details, so better watch out. You don’t want to start all over again just because you put a wrong passport number!
 
Again, the details on your passport MUST correspond with the details on your ETA visa.
