The Department provides advice on visa and border requirements for organisations and individuals managing conferences and events in Australia involving international participants and delegates, including any contractors/workers.

It is important for you to provide the Department’s International Event Coordinator Network (IECN) service with advance notice of events to allow them to provide timely advice to relevant parties associated with the event. The IECN service can help to ensure that your participants apply for the correct visas in time for their event.

    The IECN can provide advice for the following types of events:
  • Business or academic meetings, conferences and seminars
  • Sporting tournaments, championships and games
  • Trade shows, expos and fairs
  • Cultural festivals
  • Religious events.

The IECN will also refer you to the right area of the Department for advice on import and export requirements in relation to baggage, equipment and other goods for events.

Register your event as early as possible using the IECN Enquiry Form and email any enquiries to iecn.nsw@border.gov.au
