After entries close, players will be sent a link within which they will be able to request a visa invitation letter and start the visa application process.

From now on, players and their technical team (coaches, physios, etc) should apply for the Temporary Activity Visa (subclass 408) - Invited Participant stream.

When prompted for 'Activity Type', you MUST select 'Invited for other social/cultural activity', NOT 'Sporting activities'.

This visa is completely online via an Immiaccount which you can set up, so everyone can do it online without physically submitting their passport.

Documents to attach:
  1. Copy of your passport information page (showing your photo and details)
  2. Letter of invitation (please contact [email protected] if you haven't received one)

It is valid like the previous 400 visa for 3 months.

Family members are recommended to apply for a tourist visa (i.e. ETA (subclass 601), eVisitor (subclass 651) or Visitor visa (Subclass 600) in the tourist stream).

Support personnel cannot be considered as family members and are required to apply for a visa in their own right.
