Visiting Australia - Visas

ALL visitors to Australia must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia.

You should determine which visa you should apply for, making sure that the visa allows for the purpose of visit to Australia. For example:

  • conference attendees may be eligible for a Visitor visa.
  • invited participants and speakers (whose principle intent is to impart information/facts) might be eligible for a Temporary Activity visa (subclass 408) as an invited participant in an event.

PLEASE NOTE: This information is a guide only. It is the responsibility of the individual traveller to make sure they are applying for the correct visa.

See the Conferences and events section of the Department of Home Affairs site for more information.
