Visitors to Australia must have a valid passport and the appropriate Australian visa. The type of visa depends on the purpose of the visit. Overseas visitors seeking to attend or participate in a Conference or event in Australia should, in most cases, apply for a short stay business visitor visa. You must apply for your visa early to ensure that details are confirmed prior to your departure for the Conference.
Information about this important requirement can also be found on the Australian Government website at www.immi.gov.au. Some participants will be able to obtain an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). You can apply for an ETA via www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/601.aspx or through a travel agent, an airline office or a specialist service provider to arrange an ETA on your behalf.
Invitation Letter and Visa
If you require an invitation letter for visa purposes please indicate this on your registration form or contact the Conference Secretariat. Please note this procedure is intended to assist participants who need to obtain a visa or permission to attend the Conference.
It is not an official invitation covering fees and other expenses. It does not imply any financial support from the Conference.
