Under Australia’s universal visa system, all visitors to Australia must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia (other than New Zealand passport holders who will normally be granted a Special Category visa on arrival, provided they meet health and character requirements; and permanent residents of Norfolk Island who may be granted a Permanent Resident of Norfolk Island visa on arrival).
There are many visa options available to people wishing to visit Australia. The appropriate visa option will depend, amongst other things, on the person’s purpose for visiting Australia.
To ensure you have the appropriate visa please read the following fact sheets:
- For guidance on the visa options most suitable for you, please see: Business Fact Sheet
- For information on visa application requirements, please see: Visa Application Requirements Fact Sheet
- Visas for people to come to Australia for tourism or business purposes, please see: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visi/Visi
- Visas for people to come to Australia to participate in an event as an invited participant, please see: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/408-
- Visas for people to come to Australia to undertake short-term, highly specialised work, please see: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/400-
It is suggested that all visitors should apply for a visa at least two months prior to their intended date of departure, and four months prior for people with character or health concerns.
If you require assistance with your visa application, please provide Conference Logistics with your passport details via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. These details will then be provided to the International Event Coordinator Network (IECN) at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection; however, you will need to make your own visa application through your nearest Australian Embassy. NB: These are the visa options available presently, however the Department reserves the right to change regulations. IECN assistance will NOT guarantee a visa grant. Visa applicants must demonstrate that they meet all the legislative requirements for an Australian visa.
