Will there be a discounted registration for groups?

We are currently working on registration options and will share more information as soon as it is available, but we welcome groups of all sizes to participate in the Baptist World Congress.

Will I need a visa to attend?

Most visitors will need to apply for a visa to enter Australia. There are a number of types of visas, including electronic ones, depending on where you are from and your circumstances. Please check your visa requirements at Review the site periodically as the requirements can change at any time. We are working with the relevant Australian authorities to be sure that Australian embassies around the world are aware of the event to help expedite applications.

Will there be a virtual registration option?

While we wish that everyone could attend in person, we do understand that various factors impact one’s ability to travel. Our heart is for as many people in our global Baptist family to participate as possible. To that end, we are researching virtual options and will post more information as soon as it is available.
