Visa information

The Australian Government advises allowing a minimum of 6 weeks for processing of visa applications, so KBS 2024 delegates are advised to apply once they have confirmation of an accepted abstract, and no later than 5 April 2024.

Visa requirements differ depending on country of origin, but all KBS delegates who are not Australian passport holders will require a visa. Information for specific countries is included below. Note: the most inexpensive and quickest options are outlined here.
