There are many visa options available to people wishing to visit Australia. For Speakers,your Speaker Liaison has further information on visa options and can provide fact sheets and guidance. Should you require a Letter of Invitation for your visa application, your Speaker Liaison will also be able to assist. Please note that Letters of Invitation will not be provided for Delegates.

Further information on Australian visa and immigration requirements can be found at Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
