The Australian Embassy in Cambodia

 

Important changes to Smartraveller are coming. Our new Smartraveller website will be launched in November. It will include a simpler system for getting travel advice updates and a new approach to registration.

Travellers have told us what they want most from Smartraveller is timely travel advice.  We’ve listened, and we’re working on a subscription service that will deliver the latest updates to your inbox and SMS critical alerts in a crisis.

As part of the update we no longer ask Australians to register their travel before departure. 
From November, Smartraveller’s registration system will activate only when there’s a crisis overseas. 
The service we provide to Australians in difficulty overseas is not changing.
You’re still welcome to register your travel with Smartraveller until November. 

As always, we encourage Australians overseas to stay in touch with friends and family and let them know you’re safe.
If you need immediate assistance, you can call the Consular Emergency Centre on +61 2 6261 3305 from overseas or 1300 555 135 from within Australia.

Ambassador's Message

Angela Corcoran, Ambassador 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’s relationship with Cambodia spans 66 years of diplomatic relations, and we work 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, and infrastructure. Through the Australia Awards program Australia has awarded over 750 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 Home Affairs, also represented at the Embassy, works with the Cambodian Government to help build its capacity on border management.

Every year, new Australian companies are recognising the opportunities presented by Cambodia’s economic growth and strategic location. 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. I am also pleased to see more Cambodians visiting Australia.

For Australians living or visiting Cambodia – welcome. I encourage you to read the travel advice and register your travel at www.smartraveller.gov.au. 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.

For Cambodians wishing to visit Australia, you can find information on applying for a visa here.
