Visa information

Everyone entering Australia is required to have valid travel documentation - visa and passport (required documents). If traveling from overseas, it is important that your visa application is made well in advance of anticipated travel time. Please check carefully with your travel agent to confirm all visa details. Location and address details for Australian Visa offices, worldwide, are listed here. Please note: Status as a conference delegate, alone, does not guarantee the issuing of a visa.

The website for the Department of Immigration, provides information on:

  • How to apply for a Visa
  • Customs clearance
  • Quarantine regulations and health issues - Australia has strict quarantine regulations
