NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL VISITORS TO AUSTRALIA: All visitors to Australia must have a valid visa before boarding their plane regardless of the length of stay.
Applying for a Visa
To determine what visa you need, please visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection ‘Find a visa’ website.
Advice from the Australian Government for the best possible chance of obtaining a visa is:
- Determine which visa you should apply for. All workshop participants will require a visa applicable to a business event. The exact visa subclass will depend on what country you are coming from, how long you are staying, etc.
- Apply for your visa at least six weeks before your intended date of travel to Australia (or two weeks if you are from an ETA or eVisitor eligible country) as visa processing times may vary.
- Consider Australia’s health and character requirements, which you will have to meet as part of the visa application process.
- If you are not eligible to apply for an eVisitor visa or ETA, ensure you obtain a confirmation of your registration, or a letter of invitation, to attach to your Visitor Subclass 600 visa application.
