Visa FAQ

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/. Most international participants will need a business visitor visa, either a eVisitor (e.g. passport holders from the European Union) or a short stay business visa, see this information. We recommend that international participants applying for a paper-based visa lodge their application at least 6-8 weeks before their intended travel date to Australia.

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 participants from several countries may need to provide biometric data with their 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
