Access ADS

On 22 February 2016 Austrade released a new web based portal for ITOs called Access ADS.

Access ADS will allow ITOs to submit their ADS itineraries to Austrade online. There are a series of additional functions that Access ADS offers approved ITOs. ITOs will also be able to:

  • View their ADS demerit points balance.
  • Check the director and operational persons contact details that have been submitted to Austrade.
  • Reference any relevant suspension or probation details.
  • Create and manage ITO users who will be able to submit ADS itineraries on the ITOs behalf.

ITOs are required to submit all of their ADS itineraries through Access ADS. It is a requirement under the ADS Code of Business Standards and Ethics that itineraries are submitted at least 48 hours before the commencement of the tour in Australia.

Changing or updating your details

If any of your business contact details change or are currently incorrect please contact the ADS unit who will be able to update these details on your behalf.

Please remember that it is a requirement under the ADS Code of Business Standards and Ethics that ADS approved ITOs contact Austrade in writing within 5 business days regarding any change in ownership or effective control of an ITO.
