Consular Assistance

Consular staff can assist Australians overseas in accordance with the Australian Consular Service Charter.
The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade maintains a 24/7 Consular Emergency Centre, so you can always contact a consular officer if you are in urgent need of assistance.

We also encourage you to take out appropriate travel insurance and read the Travel Advisories for information about your country of destination.

You should take personal responsibility for your travel choices, your safety, finances and behaviour overseas, including obeying the laws of the country you are visiting.

What we can and cannot do

 Further information on what we can and can not do for Australians overseas can be found here


Get the latest travel advisories and other traveller hints from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

As part of the update we no longer ask Australians to register their travel before departure.  

Smartraveller’s registration system will activate only when there’s a crisis overseas.  

We encourage Australians overseas to stay in touch with friends and family and let them know you’re safe.

If you need immediate assistance, you can call the Consular Emergency Centre on +61 2 6261 3305 from overseas or 1300 555 135 from within Australia.
