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.

Please ensure that documents relating to Notarial services are presented in the correct form and that you provide the correct instructions for witnessing any signatures on the documents. If you are unsure of the legislative requirements relating to witnessing signatures on a particular document, you should seek independent legal advice. Please note, by witnessing a signature on a document neither the Australian Government nor the Australian High Commission guarantee the legal effectiveness of the document or the accuracy of its contents.
Smartraveller: New Website!
Smartraveller has the latest, authoritative travel advice so you can be informed and prepared about overseas travel.
Our new website provides a more simple system for receiving travel advice updates and a new approach to registration. We no longer ask Australians to register their travel before departure.
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.
