Updated travel advice & information about Consulate services

Travel Advice

The current travel advice for Australia is available online here. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade advises against all non-essential travel overseas at least until March 29.

Irish citizens who have concerns about the Coronavirus can call the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade dedicated phone line on +353 (0)1 613 1733.

Irish citizens wishing to return to Ireland from Australia are advised to do so as soon as possible as fewer options may be available due to an expected reduction in scheduled flights. Please contact your airline if in doubt. Follow @dfatravelwise on Twitter and download our TravelWise app.

Health related information for New South Wales is available online here or by calling the Australia’s National Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080.

In order to contribute to efforts to suppress the transmission of coronavirus the Consulate’s public office is currently closed, except by limited appointments.
