Australian High Commission
Republic of Nauru

Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the Australian High Commission in Nauru. We invite you to access the resources and information contained on this website or contact us if you wish to make a general inquiry.

Australia is a close friend and partner of the Republic of Nauru. Australia enjoys good relations with Nauru as its largest trade, investment and development assistance partner.

Under the Australia-Nauru Aid Partnership Arrangement, the governments of Australia and Nauru are working together to improve economic growth opportunities and reduce poverty in Nauru. The three priorities of Australia’s aid to Nauru include: improving public sector management; investing in nation building infrastructure; and supporting human development, with a particular focus on health and education.”

Australia itself is a stable, democratic and multi-cultural society with a strong competitive economy and a tradition of scientific and innovative excellence. The quality of life enjoyed by people in Australia is one of the highest in the world. This website contains more information for people interested in going to Australia.

New Smartraveller

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.
