Visa Applications

International delegates please note: You will need a visa to enter Australia.

For more information, please see the visa factsheet.

All international visitors to Australia (the sole exception being citizens of Australia and New Zealand travelling on Australian and New Zealand passports) must obtain a visa in advance. You are urged to apply for a visa no later than six weeks prior to travel. Residents of many countries may now apply for a visa online, others will need to apply at an Australian Embassy, Consulate or High Commission.

For information on how and where to apply for a visitor visa to Australia, please go to the Department of Immigration website.

Please be aware that you will need to register and pay for the Congress before you apply for a visa. The Congress managers are unable to provide you with an invitation letter for visa purposes. You are responsible for your visa and travel arrangements. No refunds will be provided for delegates unable to attend the Congress due to visa restrictions.
