Foreign Government Agencies
The purpose of this type of Australia visa is to allow a temporary stay of foreign government officials to conduct official business on behalf of their government in Australia.
For stays of up to three months, or in cases involving directors of the British Council, Alliance Francaise, Goethe Institute or Italian Cultural Institute, a statement of support is required from the Australian Foreign Ministry. In all other cases, a sponsorship is required unless entering under the provisions of a bilateral agreement. You may not change employer or occupation without prior permission.
