Ambassador's Message

Angela Corcoran, Ambassador-Designate to the Kingdom of Cambodia

Welcome to the website of the Australian Embassy in Phnom Penh. This site contains a broad range of information on the Embassy's services.

Australia is a close friend of Cambodia. Our partnership has developed rapidly since the days of the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia twenty years ago. The Australian Embassy in Phnom Penh continues to work with the Royal Government of Cambodia across a broad range of sectors.

The Embassy’s aid section is one of our largest and coordinates Australia’s development assistance program here in Cambodia. In recent years, the program has focused on health, agriculture and rural development, infrastructure and governance. Through the Australia Awards scheme Australia has awarded over 500 scholarships for Cambodians to study at Australian Universities.

The Australian Federal Police here in Phnom Penh, works with the Cambodian National Police, to fight transnational crime. The Australian Defence Force runs a defence cooperation program with the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces which, for example, seeks to coordinate regional maritime surveillance. The Department of Immigration and Border Protection, also represented at the Embassy, works with the Cambodian Government to help build its capacity on border management.

Meanwhile, an increasing number of Australian companies are recognising the opportunities presented by Cambodia’s impressive economic growth and strategic location in the heart of a booming region. Beyond our strong government and business ties, Australia and Cambodia also share deep and longstanding people-to-people links. I look forward to the networks between our countries continuing to grow as increasing numbers of Australians visit Cambodia for tourism, work and study, including through the New Colombo Plan. The bonds between our countries are also being strengthened by the ever-greater number of Cambodians visiting Australia.

For Australians living or visiting Cambodia – welcome. I encourage you to read the travel advice and register your travel at This will enable us to contact you in the event of an emergency. It may also be used to pass other important information on to you such as updated Travel Advisories, and notice of elections.
