Consular services charter
The Consular Services Charter provides a high-level overview and information on consular services. The Australian Government will do what it can to help Australians in difficulty overseas, but there are legal and practical limits to what help we may be able to provide. Please see the relevant section of the Consular Services Charter for more information.
We recommend that Australians, who are travelling or planning to reside in Tunisia or any other country, register online on our Smartraveller website. Registration information helps us to find you in an emergency - whether it is a natural disaster, civil disturbance or a family emergency. Your information is strictly protected by the Privacy Act 1988.
