COVID 19 - important information for Australians
We now advise all Australians not to travel overseas. If you can't or decide not to return to Australia, follow the advice of local authorities and minimise your risk of exposure.
The Embassy is operating with a reduced in-office team and reduced public opening hours (09:00 am to 1:00 pm) due to COVID-19 disruptions. Client services are strictly by appointment only.
If you can't find an available appointment and it's urgent, call our office on +381 (0)11 3303 400.
Read our Consular Services Charter for what services we can and cannot provide.
After hours please call +61 2 6261 3305.
Returning to Australia
Australian citizens who wish to return to Australia and have been unable to do so can register their details here: https://covid19.dfat.gov.au/citizeninformation/s/.
Please ensure you include any medical or other vulnerabilities affecting you or your family members in your registration. There is no need to register if you have already provided your details to the Embassy. Registering your details does not guarantee we can facilitate a seat on a flight or your return to Australia.
