Summary

There is no “right” to consular services, nor is there any legislative requirement for the Government to provide those services. It is accepted practice that governments help their citizens abroad in certain situations. If Australian officials overseas, in consultation with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Canberra, provide assistance to an Australian – for example if they have been in an accident, have been victim of crime, or if their friends or family in Australia are concerned about their whereabouts – this is a consular “case”. The number of such cases varies each year, but at any given time, the Department is managing around 1,300 active cases, some of them highly complex and protracted. Consular officials also provide advice and assistance to many thousands of Australians for less complex matters that are more quickly resolved and provide notarial services for Australians and for others requiring documents for Australian purposes.
