Information for international delegates
We recommend that International delegates apply for their visa at least 6-8 weeks before their intended travel date to Australia.
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). There are a number of visa options available, see: http://www.immi.gov.au/visawizard/
You should refer to the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship's pages on the International Event Coordinator Network (IECN) Service
Please note that with the implementation of the new Biometrics Program you may need to provide biometric data with your visa application, see: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/biometrics/offshore/countries.htm
All visa applicants are also required to meet certain character and health requirements as part of their visa application process, see: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/health-requirements/ and http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/character-requirements/
