All international delegates, apart
from New Zealand citizens, must obtain a Visa or Electronic
Travel Authority (ETA) before travelling to Australia.
Please ensure you organise your documentation well
in advance of travel.
Australia’s Electronic Travel
Authority (ETA) is equivalent to a visa for a short-term
tourist or business entry. ETAs are issued within
seconds of being requested through computer links
between the Australian Immigration Department, travel
agents, airlines and specialist service providers
around the world. Over 30 countries around the world
have access to the free ETA system.
Conference delegates from non-ETA
countries will need to obtain a Business
(short stay) visa, even if some tourism activities
are planned for part of the stay in Australia. It
is called a 456
visa if it is issued as a label into a passport.
Details are available from your Australian
Embassy/Consulate or visit the Australian
Department of Immigration website for more information.
