Visa Information

All visitors to Australia must have a valid visa before boarding their plane (you cannot obtain a visa upon arrival) to travel to and enter Australia (other than New Zealand passport holders who will normally be granted a Special Category visa on arrival provided they meet health and character requirements).

There are two visa options for international workshop delegates:

  • Business visa: most appropriate option for delegates fulfilling an official role such as speaking/presenting at the event, or if the delegate is employed and is travelling to Australia to be involved in an activity that is related to their profession.
  • Tourist visa: most appropriate option for delegates whose only purpose is to attend/observe the event.

The passport which you hold determines whether you can apply online or if you need to lodge a paper-based application. It is recommended that participants lodge their visa application at least 2 weeks before their intended date of travel to Australia for online visa applications or 6-8 weeks for paper-based applications. All visa applicants will be required to meet certain character and health requirements as part of their visa application process.

Some delegates will require a formal invitation letter from the QoMEX 2012 Conference Organisation Committee. To be eligible for an invitation letter, you must be either an invited speaker/guest of the workshop or an author who has an accepted paper and already paid the registration fee. If you require an invitation letter, please email us at qomex2012@gmail.com
