Travelling from Overseas?

All visitors to Australia must have a valid visa before boarding their plane regardless of the length of stay. New Zealand and Norfolk Island passport holders do not usually need to lodge a visa application prior to their departure unless they have health and/or character concerns. For the best possible chance of obtaining a visa to travel to Australia to attend an event, you should:

  • Determine which visa you should apply for. See: Find a visa
  • Apply for your visa at least 6 to 8 weeks before your intended date of travel to Australia (or two weeks for online applications) as visa processing times may vary.
  • Consider Australia’s health and character requirements, which you will have to meet as part of the visa application process.
  • If you are not from an eVisitor or ETA eligible country, ensure you obtain a confirmation of your registration, or a letter of invitation, to attach to your paper-based visa application.

Lodge paper-based visa applications at the Australian visa office nearest to your current country of residence. See: Immigration Offices Outside Australia
