Passports and Immigration (VISA Information)

All visitors to Australia must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia. Please note that, for International participants, to obtain an Australian visa an Invitation Letter is not required.  Once you have registered and paid the registration fees in full then your confirmation of registration or tax invoices for payment of registration fees is sufficient to lodge with your visa application.  For VISA information please download the following information factsheet from the Australian Immigration Office.

Note – it is strongly recommended that Australian visa applications are lodged at least two months prior to departure from your port of origin.
