Information for International Delegates
We recommend that International delegates apply for their visa at least 6-8 weeks before their intended travel date to Australia.
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). There are a number of visa options available, see: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-finder.
You should refer to the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship’s pages at the https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/ .
All passengers arriving by air in Australia should complete the Digital Passenger Declaration, see: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/covid19
Please note that with the implementation of the new Biometrics Program you may need to provide biometric data with your visa application, see: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/biometrics
All visa applicants are also required to meet certain character and health requirements as part of their visa application process, see: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/health and https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/character
