Visa and travel information

Due to COVID, business visa processing times for international delegates travelling to Australia to attend conferences have been affected, and applications may take longer than usual to finalise.

To avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend you apply for your visa now.

Please explore your visa options to visit Australia to attend this conference.   

If you plan to get help applying for your visa, please note that only certain people can do this. Find out who can help with your visa application before you make payment.
