Tax

Visa Application

Under Australia’s universal visa system, 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, provided they meet health and character requirements; and permanent residents of Norfolk Island who may be granted a Permanent Resident of Norfolk Island visa on arrival).

There are many visa options available to people wishing to visit Australia. The appropriate visa option will depend, amongst other things, on the person’s purpose for visiting Australia.

To ensure you have the appropriate visa please visit this page at the Department of Home Affairs.

It is suggested that all visitors should apply for a visa at least two months prior to their intended date of departure, and four months prior for people with character or health concerns.

If you require assistance with your visa application please provide Conference Logistics with your passport details via email at  iped@conlog.com.au. These details will then be provided to the International Event Coordinator Network (IECN) at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection; however, you will need to make your own visa application through your nearest Australian Embassy.
