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.

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.
