Emergency situations


The Australian Government, through its consular officers, endeavours to provide assistance in situations where danger exists due to civil unrest, war, etc., when it is considered necessary and where it can be arranged. This does not diminish the obligation of citizens to keep themselves informed on the situation in the country likely to affect their safety or to meet costs incurred in rendering assistance.
