Australian High Commission

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The health and safety of Australians overseas is our highest priority. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our ability to provide some services may be limited. We will continue to prioritise consular services to those in genuine need.

Update to new measures for return to Australia

Following the decision by National Cabinet (8 January 2021) and  announcement from the Prime Minister, if you’re travelling to Australia on or after 22 January 2021, you must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 (PCR) test to your airline when checking in for your flight at the departure point.

We invite Australian citizens and Australian permanent residents to register with the Australian High Commission in Pakistan. Please complete the registration process for each member of your family through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade COVID19 registration portal. We encourage you to continue to monitor our smartraveller advice and social media as links given below.
