About the Embassy

    Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Israel in Canberra, Australia.
    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Israel formulates, implements and presents foreign policy of the Israeli government; the Embassy in turn works to present those policies to the Australian government. Thereby the Embassy acts as a liaison to strengthen the ties between the two governments.

    The Embassy of Israel has different departments that are dedicated to promoting diplomatic relations, economic growth and friendship between the State of Israel and Australia. Departments include those of the Ambassador, Deputy Chief of Mission, the Spokesperson & Cultural Department, Consular Department, Defence Attach​é and Security Attaché .
