Don’t forget your Visa
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, provided they meet health and character requirements; and permanent residents of Norfolk Island who may be granted a Permanent Resident of Norfolk Island visa on arrival). The passport which you hold determines whether you are eligible to apply online, or need to lodge a paper based application.
All visitors should apply for a visa at least two months prior to their intended date of departure, and four months prior for people with character or health concerns. The Congress Secretariat holds no responsibility for visa applications.
