Delegates are advised to check their visa requirements and make the necessary visa arrangements as early as possible. Citizens of certain countries and territories need a visa to visit Australia and/or to transit through to other countries on their way to Australia. The FIGO Congress Secretariat can provide letters of invitation to delegates that have registered and paid their registration fee, but FIGO cannot provide specialist visa application support or take responsibility for individual delegate's visa arrangements.
Delegates are advised to take out their own insurance to cover their travel, personal possessions, and cancellation. The FIGO Congress Secretariat cannot protect delegates against cancellation of bookings, cancellation or disruption of travel, or theft or damage to personal possessions.
Please be vigilant when making online registration and accommodation reservations.

The FIGO Congress Secretariat will make best efforts to report fraudulent websites to the relevant authorities, but cannot control external websites and cannot take responsibility for delegates that make bookings and payments via fraudulent or unauthorised websites.

FIGO will make every effort to ensure all Congress programme activities are diverse and representative in terms of gender and regional representation. However, FIGO cannot guarantee that unforeseen or last minute circumstances may result in some sessions becoming less gender or geographically balanced than originally intended, due to speaker changes.
