Travel & Visas

Melbourne is the coastal capital of the southeastern Australian state of Victoria.  It has an International Airport with links to many major airport hubs across the world.  Melbourne had a population of 4,529,500 at the 2015 census making it the second largest urban area in Australia just behind Sydney which only has half a million more people.

UK and most other European nationals can apply for an eVisitor visa and the online VISA FINDER advises on the most appropriate visa for other nationals (Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore may be eligible for electronic travel authority).  Delegates must ensure they have the correct visa.
