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.

Please feel free to contact us if you require more information or assistance. The Embassy's e-mail address is:

I send my warm greetings to Muslims in Australia and all around the world who are
celebrating Eid ul-Adha and performing the Hajj this year.
Muslim Australians are among the millions of pilgrims undertaking the annual Hajj,
which honours the sacrifice and devotion of Abraham and serves as a reminder of the
shared Abrahamic roots of Islam, Judaism and Christianity.
During the Eid ul-Adha holiday, Muslims of all ages and backgrounds commemorate
the prophethood of Abraham through acts of charity and praying for those in need.
Australia is the most successful and harmonious multicultural society in the world.
The Australian Muslim community plays an important role in strengthening our
diverse social fabric.
I send my best wishes to everyone celebrating Eid ul-Adha.
Eid Mubarak and Hajj Mabrour. 

The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP
Prime Minister of Australia
24 September 2015
