Visas and visitors

Every non-Australian visitor requires the appropriate visa for the activities they perform at the Con, whether paid or unpaid. Visitors must consult their Embassy for visa advice, and the University, as employer, must have a copy of every visitor’s visa before any activities commence.  

It is mandatory for all staff to advise Heggy at least one month in advance of intent to engage a visitor. She will then liaise with your visitor and guide them through the process. 

You can download relevant policies and forms from the Learning & Teaching support pages.

Grant opportunities - Sydney Southeast Asia Centre

Registrations are now open for this one-day forum on 20 March (Old Darlington School, Darlington campus, University of Sydney), which will examine the relationship between performers, the people who documented them and the afterlives of resulting records in order to better understand the historical and contemporary relevance of these interactions. The fluidity of our own media moment, including the large-scale digitisation of media archives, makes it timely – and indeed necessary – to rethink the significance of these encounters. Click on the link for the full program and registration.

Image – Music – Text will be followed by a launch of two recent edited books at the Forum Restaurant, Darlington Centre, University of Sydney. To RSVP for the book launch, please email

Please contact Adrienne Sach or Adam Wilson if you wish to include any news items on the staff intranet pages.
