Online registration is the preferred method of registration for immediate confirmations and letters of invitation, if needed. Hardcopy
forms submitted to RI Registration Services require three to four weeks to process; please allow more time for forms submitted on or
around registration deadline dates. Once your faxed or emailed registration has been processed, you will receive an email confirmation.
LetteRs oF inVitation/Visas
If Australia requires a letter of invitation of those visiting from your country of residence, RI will email you the letter in PDF format along
with your emailed confirmation of convention registration. Letters are sent to the main registrant and include the names of all guests of
that registrant. RI will send letters of invitation only to those who are registered for the convention. Registrants are responsible for all
costs associated with attending the meeting and visa applications.
If you need a visa to enter Australia, we strongly recommend ONLINE registration before the first deadline (15 December 2013) for immedi-
ate confirmations and letters of invitation. If submitting a registration form by fax or mail, please allow adequate time for registration and
visa processing. Find detailed information on Australia’s visa requirements at www.immi.gov.au/visitors.
Be sure to read the CANCELLATION POLICy on the last page of this form.
By attending the RI Convention, registrants consent to be photographed by any means, including still photography and video recording,
and grant Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation the right to use and publish and license their names, voices, and likenesses
forever and for any purpose worldwide without RI or the Foundation incurring debts or liabilities of any kind.
For security purposes, all registrants must show photo identification (driver’s license or passport) at the convention venue in order to
obtain their registration materials. RI reserves the right to check photo identification at any time during registrants’ attendance at the
convention. Random spot checks will be made to compare badge information with photo identification. Badges that do not match photo
identification will be confiscated without refund and violators ejected. RI reserves the right to inspect all purses and bags. Registrants
may refuse inspection; RI reserves the right to prevent entry.
