Welcome to the website of the Australian Embassy in Cairo. This website is designed to provide you with information about Australia and Egypt, and the services the Embassy is able to offer.

The Australian Embassy in Cairo is responsible for covering Australia's relations with not only Egypt, but also Sudan, Syria and Eritrea, where we do not maintain Embassies.

There is an extensive array of information online about Australia and the Australian Government and this site may be used as a tool to direct you to these sites.

For those seeking information about Egypt and travel to Egypt, a good place to start is with the website of the Egyptian Embassy in Canberra.

   On November 2, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop launched a new Smartraveller campaign to help better inform and prepare you for your next overseas trip.
The campaign features a revamped Smarttraveller website, an updated registration system and the release of a new smartphone application for android devices to make it even easier to get the information you need to stay safe overseas.
General travel advice is also now available in six languages, including Arabic.
