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.



Smartraveller: New Website!

Our new Smartraveller website includes a simpler system for getting travel advice updates and a new approach to registration. We no longer ask Australians to register their travel before departure.  

Smartraveller has the latest, authoritative travel advice so you can be informed and prepared about overseas travel.

  • Subscribe to receive travel advice updates - by simply supplying your name and email address – straight to your inbox.
  • You can now also subscribe to the new SMS service - by supplying your mobile number – to receive critical alerts in the event of a crisis overseas.
  • In a crisis, Smartraveller will activate a crisis page on its website. It will make it easier for you or someone you know to contact the Australian Government if you need help. It will supplement the consular emergency hotline.

As always, 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.
