Visas

All visitors to Australia are required to obtain a visa or Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) in advance to be granted entry to Australia.  An ETA provides authorisation to travel to and enter Australia and is electronically linked to your passport.  An ETA is for short term stays for tourism or business visitor activities such as attending a conference/meeting. You can apply for a visa through the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) online and you'll be issued a visa instantly if you have a passport from one of the following countries:

  • Brunei-Darussalam
  • Canada
  • Hong Kong (SAR PRC)
  • Japan
  • Korea, Rep of (South)
  • Malaysia
  • Singapore
  • United States

The Visa application process costs AUD$20.00 using your credit card.   Please visit the following website to apply:  https://www.eta.immi.gov.au/ETAS3/etas

PLEASE NOTE:If you are a passport holder of any other country than those listed above, you will need to visit https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1  to determine your specific visa entry requirements.  

·         You need to select Business activities as this reflects that you are attending a conference. 

·         Input your country of passport and age and click next.  You are then directed to which visa is appropriate for you.
