If you are not from Australia or New Zealand, you must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia and this information is for you. Please visit the following website and double-check that you fulfil the necessary entry requirements for Australia.

Australia stages many large international medical conferences and the visa process is normally very efficient. The most important advice that we can provide is to commence the application process as soon as possible. Registering early should allow plenty of time to receive your visa. 

The following is some general guidance.

Visitor visas

As a participant/attendee
If you are planning to visit Australia to attend a business event such as a conference as a participant or an attendee (that is, you will not be working, entertaining, or being paid to contribute), you may be eligible for one of the following Visitor visas:
- Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) (subclass 601)
- eVisitor (subclass 651)
- Visitor visa (subclass 600) in the Business Visitor stream.

Temporary Activity visa (subclass 408)

As a speaker, presenter, exhibitor, or other contributor
If you have been invited to participate in the event by an Australia organisation and you are contributing to the event, for example: as a speaker, presenter, or exhibitor, you may be eligible for the Temporary Activity visa as an ‘Invited Participant’.

If you apply from outside Australia and intend to stay in Australia for three months or less, you do not need to be sponsored for this visa. However, you must provide a letter of invitation from APSR which identifies:
- you (as the visa applicant) and any family members travelling with you
- the event/s, activity or work you will be involved
- the duties in relation to event/s, activity or work you will be involved
- the date/s, location/s of the event/s activity or work.

To apply for this visa as an ‘Invited Participant’, please select the following Activity type: Invited for other social/cultural activity on page 2 of the online application form.

For any other questions, or to request a letter of invitation, please contact


Should you need to cancel your registration for any reason, you may reassign your registration to another person. Please notify The Conference Company of the replacement delegate's name and contact details. If you cancel your registration prior to 23 September 2017 you will receive a refund less a cancellation fee of AU$100. Cancellations made after that date will not be refunded.
