Organise Your Visit


Planning your day at UNSW

Our team welcomes more than 100 esteemed international delegations to the UNSW campus every year. Visitors call in for a range of purposes – some wish to explore partnerships with UNSW, some are looking for research collaborations, and others call in to get to know us better or simply to say hello.

Students should view our Future Students website for information about visiting UNSW. Arranging a visit to UNSW is easy.

You'll just need to follow these steps:

  1. Think about when you would like to visit UNSW Australia
  2. Think about what you'd like to get out of your visit to UNSW
  3. Make a list of all the visitors in your party
  4. Submit the visit request form, preferably 30 days prior to your visit
  5. We will do our best to get back to you within five working days
  6. We'll also stay in touch until your actual visit

Organise Your Visa

All visitors to Australia must have a valid visa and this should be requested at least six weeks before your trip. Please see further information on the Department of Immigration website.

Use the visit request form to let us know if you will require a visa support letter.
