Services for Australians
The Australian Embassy in Majuro provides consular assistance to Australians in an emergency. Please be aware that not all consular and passport services are available in the Marshall Islands. Restrictions related to COVID-19 has also constricted our consular services.
Please see our travel advice for the Marshall Islands.
Our new Smartraveller website includes a simple system for getting updates to this travel advice and a new approach to registration. We no longer ask Australians to register their travel before departure. The registration system activates only when there’s a crisis overseas.
Visit www.smartraveller.gov.au to subscribe or follow Smartraveller on Facebook and Twitter. The Embassy Facebook account will also provide updates in a crisis.
As always, we encourage Australians overseas to stay in touch with friends and family and let them know your plans and that you’re safe. In the event of an emergency, please reach out to your insurance company, tour operator and/or family.
If you need immediate assistance, you can also call the Consular Emergency Centre on +61 2 6261 3305 from overseas or 1300 555 135 from within Australia.
