Travelling to Australia

Visas to Enter Australia

International delegates please note - You will need a visa to enter Australia and it must be obtained before you travel. We recommend that you apply not less than six (6) weeks prior to your departure date.

Delegates from all countries will need to apply for and obtain a visa to enter Australia. The only exceptions are citizens of Australia and New Zealand travelling on passports issued by these countries. Delegates from some countries will need an official letter of invitation and/or confirmation of congress registration to be provided with their visa application. These letters can only be provided after clearance of registration fee payment. The visa application process differs depending on your country of residence and the location of the nearest Australian embassy, consulate or high commission. For citizens of some countries, applying for an Australian visa is a simple and quick on-line process. In other cases, application forms and an interview may be involved. Please visit the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration website at the address shown below – there you will find detailed information on the visa application process applicable to you.

Australia is the world’s only island continent. Our shores are bathed by the Pacific, Indian and Southern Oceans and our waters stretch from the tropics to the Antarctic. The current population is around 21 million and more than 80% of the Australian population lives within 50 kilometres of the coast. There are 10,685 beaches on which to play – that’s more than anywhere else on Earth.

Typical city life reflects the vigor of a young and ambitious nation combines with a relaxed and casual outlook, passion for local food and produce and a love for outdoor living and water-based recreation. It’s a heady mix that sparks great energy expressed by multi-cultural and cosmopolitan precincts, fabulous festivals and spectacular events.
Nature was inspired when it created Australia – animals you’ll see nowhere else and plants that will amaze you. Australia is one of the most diverse countries on the planet, home to more than one million species of plants and animals, many of which are found nowhere else in the world.
Australia is home to 16 World-Heritage sites. One of these, Kakadu National Park, covers a land area of almost 20,000 square kilometers – the same size as the country of Israel. About 81 million hectares (10.5% of our land area is protected in national Reserve and there are 547 national parks.
Across this massive land and all its 12,000 islands, thousands of possible journeys connect endless unique Australian experiences, destinations and products. From the very beginning of our creation, Aboriginal people knew it was only by travelling the land, letting nature and spirits shape the journey, that they could have a true understanding of Australia. Travelling in Australia is about discovering the diversity, the wonder, isolation and vibrant towns, the people and their unique way of life. You can take weeks meandering through rolling countryside, red desert, sparkling waterholes and spiritual heritage, or a few days exploring wine regions, wilderness coast, island clusters, reefs…. the choices are endless.
Go Outback to experience endless space and the roots of our culture in the vast Red Centre, or ‘out bush’ to country towns, to hinterlands and boutique regions. Or take a break from your usual world – meet a Winemaker, go deep-sea fishing or spot a croc. Travelling our ancient and lightly travelled land is one of the most rewarding journeys you will experience.
