The International Event Coordinator Network (IECN) of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has informed us that we can assist timely processing by Australia's visa offices overseas (predominantly for those applying for the Business(Short Stay) (Subclass 456) visa) if you register for the conference and then provide us the following information:

If you provide us with this information, we will forward it to the IECN to aid the overseas visa offices. Your information will not be used in any other manner and will not be stored by FPT coordinators after it has been sent. We will send the details of all participants who have provided information to IECN at the end of each month. In accordance with Australia's Privacy Act 1988, any information an event organiser or participant provides to the IECN will only be used to facilitate visa processing with the relevant Australian visa office overseas.

If you would like us to help, please e-mail us the above information with the subject "FPT'09 Visa Information" via this link, or fill out the form below and click the submit button which will construct an e-mail and let you alter it before sending. Please register for the conference before doing so, or your information will likely be ignored. We will send a confirmation of registration letter to those that perform this task to aid with processing of your visa when you apply in your country of residence.
