Visa Information

All international delegates (non-Australian passport holders) will require a visa to enter Australia for ADU. For information on visa requirements and applications, please visit the Department of Home Affairs’ website:

Letters of Invitation

To assist with the visa application process, the organisers of ADU are able to provide registered delegates with a letter of invitation to indicate attendees are in Australia for genuine business purposes. Please contact Namukale Nakazwe-Msiska, to request a letter of invitation for ADUWe will only issue letters of invitation to delegates/sponsors that have paid their registration fees in full. Please provide the following details in order for us to issue a visa letter.

Visa Processing Times

The standard visa processing time indicated by the Department of Home Affairs is four weeks; however it would be prudent to allow four to eight weeks for visa applications to be processed. As such the conference organisers recommend visa applications are submitted no later than six weeks prior to the conference (by Friday 13 July 2018) due to the high volume of visa applications received for ADU. Applications can be submitted up to three months prior to the anticipated arrival date.

The above information is provided as a guide only. Please contact the Australian visa office closest to your current place of residence for current visa information.

It is the responsibility of each delegate to find out the visa information and regulations pertinent to their country of citizenship.
