Visa requirements for Australia

If you are from a country other than Australia or New Zealand you will need a visa and a valid passport or other acceptable travel document to enter Australia.

Important things to note:

  • apply for your visa in advance to allow for variances in processing times
  • ensure you obtain a visa letter (see information below) to attach to your visa application
  • participants required to lodge paper-based visa applications should do so at the Australian visa office nearest to their current country of residence.

Request your visa letter

Please contact us as soon as possible to request a visa letter. In your email please include your name as it appears on your passport, your personal (not professional) address, and date of birth.

Note – WUN might not be able to help if participants do not lodge their visa applications within recommended timeframes.
