Medibank Private and other recent data breaches

If you have been advised that your Israeli or other foreign passport has been compromised in the Medibank Private cyber attack or one of the other recent data breaches, please click here for further information.




The Australian Passport Office (APO) is currently seeing strong demand for passports. For this reason, it is advising its customers to apply for or renew their passport well ahead of their planned travel dates. Passports are currently subject to around 10 weeks delivery time so planning well ahead is important.

Ambassador's Message

Welcome to the website of the Australian Embassy in Tel Aviv. I'm delighted to be here in Israel and look forward to advancing the dynamic bilateral relationship, and especially working with the Australian-Israeli community.

This site contains a broad range of information on the Embassy's services. 

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, tourism, cultural, aid or other Government services.

It’s an exciting time in the bilateral relationship, with growing commercial, investment and innovation linkages and strong people-to-people links. I look forward to working with you.

Ralph King, Ambassador
