Following changes to international travel that came into effect on 1 November 2021, DFAT’s temporary COVID-19 registration portal is no longer open for new registrations. This temporary portal was established in the context of Australia’s COVID-19 border settings. We’ll still be providing consular support to Australians in difficulty overseas. That process of seeking consular assistance has reverted to pre-COVID settings.
Australian citizens and permanent residents with existing registrations can still login to their accounts if they need assistance to return. We’ll continue to assist vulnerable Australians overseas who are unable to return on scheduled commercial flights with our program of facilitated commercial flights.
If you’re trying to return to Australia, we encourage you to:
- Continue to contact your airline or travel agent for available flights
- Read our travel advice and subscribe for updates
- Follow us on Facebook and Twitter
- Check the website of the Australian embassy or high commission in your destination and follow them closely on social media for any updates
If you’re overseas and need urgent consular assistance, contact your nearest Australian embassy or high commission, or call our 24-hour consular emergency call centre in Canberra on +61 2 6261 3305.
The world of travel is re-setting but it’s still unpredictable. Understand the risks of travel and be prepared.
