Visa information

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).

Visa options

If you are planning to visit Australia for an event such as a conference, meeting or seminar, you need to apply for a business visitor visa. The passport, which you hold, determines whether you can apply online, or if you need to lodge a paper-based application.

Download our Visa Information Guide [PDF, 237KB] to help you identify the right visa and application process for you.

This link also includes information about obtaining a visa letter from the conference organisers. We strongly encourage you to begin the visa application process in four months before the conference.
