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.

100 Years On: Celebrating the ANZAC Experience in Egypt
On the occasion of the ANZAC centenary, the Australian Embassy in Cairo, together with the Embassy of New Zealand, will host a photographic exhibition entitled “100 Years On: Celebrating the ANZAC Experience in Egypt”. This exhibition will be held at the Greater Cairo Library, Zamalek and will be open to the public on 28, 29 April 2015.
The role played by the ‘Australian and New Zealand Army Corps’, or ‘ANZACs’ in the First World War is central to Australia’s modern identity. But few people know that the ANZAC legend began in Egypt. More than 30,000 troops came to Egypt in 1914; today. about 4,000 are buried in Egyptian soil. This Exhibition seeks to revive this knowledge for Australians and Egyptians alike.
DIRECT AID PROGRAM
