Welcome to the website of the Australian Embassy in the United Arab Emirates. This site contains a broad range of information on the Embassy’s services in the United Arab Emirates and in Qatar. The Australian Ambassador to the UAE is also accredited to Qatar until the opening of the new Australian Embassy in Doha in mid-2016.


The information and links on this site are aimed at answering the most commonly asked questions about Australia. The site covers services for Australian citizens, as well as information on immigration and visas.


The site also contains links to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Australian Government websites. These links are designed to assist those looking for information on Trade, Australian culture or Government services.


Australia and the UAE cooperate across a wide range of areas including trade, defence, security, aviation, education and health. You can find out more about the Australia-UAE relationship on the DFAT website.


We regularly review and update our website and would welcome feedback from visitors on how it can be improved. For regular updates on our work in the UAE and Qatar please follow me on Twitter @AusAmbUAE.
