Travel & Visas
You are responsible for obtaining the correct paperwork to visit Australia to compete at WMUC 2020. Please note that we cannot provide specific advice on the process, but we do strongly recommend that you get started as soon as possible.
The TOC can provide your team administrator with a letter confirming your team’s registration at the event. To do that we generally require confirmation of the following details for all the members of your group: full name (as shown on passport), passport number, date of birth and role on team (i.e. player, coach, manager, etc).
Please make sure you leave us some time to produce this document: do not assume that we can send it back the same day! Find out if you will need a hard copy with original signature – obviously that will take extra time & might have postal costs so please plan ahead.
Please note: we cannot and will not provide a formal “invitation” to attend the event and non-ability to enter Australia is not grounds for a request of a refund for a team and/or player fees. We cannot provide individual letters – teams will be included on one letter.
Please be aware that some nations do not require a visa, however must travel with certain paperwork to show officers at the Australian border – we recommend EVERY TEAM makes specific enquiries.
The Australian Department of Agriculture has strict rules and controls as to what is allowed into Australia. You must declare for inspection all food, plant and animal products as you enter Australia to ensure they are free of pests and diseases. There will be a full page of information regarding footwear and cleanliness of cleats issued to all teams later in the process. Please ensure you read the information supplied very carefully.
