Under Australia’s universal visa system, 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).

A letter of acceptance and the requirements for presenting at the conference will be sent to the corresponding author of each accepted paper. Delegates will be required to register for the conference.
International delegates are encouraged to apply for their visa well in advance of their intended date of travel to Australia (upon receiving the paper acceptance letter). Information about visa processing times is available on the Department of Home Affairs’ website.
To request an official supporting letter of confirmation of registration to attend and/or present a paper at the conference, please email Dr Danielle Tyson on Danielle.Tyson@deakin.edu.au
Applying for a visa
Visa application forms are available on the Department’s website and many applications can be lodged online. Details about how to apply are included in the online information about the particular visa you wish to apply for.
Citizens of certain countries can apply for a free travel visa online (AUD 20 processing fee). This visa is valid for three months and allows you to travel throughout Australia, go on a cruise and conduct business-related activities, as long as you are not drawing an Australian wage.
You can check your eligibility for the ETA here.
If you are ineligible for an ETA, you can use this tool to check which visa you need to apply for.
