To assist timely processing by Australia's visa offices overseas, Conference Logistics will be collecting passport details, as part of the online registration system and submitting those details to the Department of Immigration. Once registrations have been paid and where passport details have been provided, we will be providing delegates with an invitation letter, which they can use when applying for their non ETA visa.
Delegates applying for a non-ETA visa must present their conference letter of invitation to an Australian visa office to support their application. Letters of invitation will be provided after registration.
