I work with 9Lives Adventures, a Vancouver company offering adventure packages for individuals with accessibility challenges. While at present we offer primarily local tours, we are interested in offering international tours in 2012. We are currently researching the feasibility of an Australian tour.
We are cooperating with a travel agency for booking accommodations in Australia. I am trying to find out what exactly is required for a Canadian company to bring Canadians on a tour in Australia. Specifically, are there legal documents and/or applications that we must submit?
If you have the time offer any insight into this process, it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for your note. However, your enquiry covers an area of tourism that’s not part of the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC)’s mandate or mission. We look to grow tourism revenue coming into this country from international travellers, as opposed to Canadians travelling abroad.
Your best bet is to contact Tourism Australia (which was formed from the Australian Tourism Commission, See Australia, the Bureau of Tourism Research and the Tourism ForecastingCouncil). They have an office in Toronto, ON, and can be contacted at:
1920 Yonge Street
They should be able to walk you through the necessary processes for such a tour, pass on relevant contacts and help you find out whether it sounds feasible.
Hope it works out for you.
All the best,
