Need some Aussie Help !


well , to make a long story short , I am driving a motorcycle across Africa
I left the motorcycle in Brazzaville (Congo). Then I flow back to Spain (I am Spaniard , btw ) ..and then my employer sent me now to Sydney for a couple years.

I am in Sydney now.

cool... fantastic


this December , I d like to fly to Congo-Brazza to resume my trip . Indeed I got already the bloddy expensive air ticket bought

and the visa ?

how am I supposed to get a Visa for Congo in Australia ??? There are no Congo consulates , no Congo embassy , and -worst of all - it seems there are no "visa procurement offices " over here ...

so how does people from Australia fly to Congo ?

using a online visa agency (i.e. French/American ) doesnt work , as they are afraid to sent papers/passports to Australia ...

any ideas ?

Thanks in advance ... and if anyone is around Sydney .. count on a few s for the help

Hi ... well , Thanks for the asnwers as they pointed me out in the right direction.
I spoke to flightcenter ... and after at least 10 emails , they forwarded me the data of their "Visa Agency"

ok .. It is "DelTec International Couriers" . They are somewhere around the Sydney's airport , near Botany (?)
the visa itself costs 100 AU$ .. but they charge a whooooping 300 (THREE HUNDRED !! ) for their Services . As I am stupid , and really short of time , I paid the 400 for the Congolese Visa.

Good news is that they can arrange visas for absolutely every conceiable country (even north Korea , etc) ..

Anyway .. Thanks a lot
