International delegation visits

International delegations can range from visits by our sister cities, to business and cultural delegations and official government visits.

City of Gold Coast is recognised internationally as a reliable local government authority. The city has developed a favourable reputation famous for tourism, education, business and liveability.

Hosting international delegations

The Office of the Mayor can assist in coordinating arrangements for international delegations prior to arrival, planning the delegation's meeting program, hosting delegations once they arrive on the Gold Coast and providing cultural and protocol advice.

Upon receipt of the form, the Office of the Mayor will assess the request and an officer will be in contact for further action. Due to the large number of delegations hosted by Council, requests usually need to reach Council at least one month prior to the proposed date of the visit.
