About Us

Welcome to the website of the Australian Embassy in Colombia!

The Embassy works to strengthen bilateral relations and to expand cooperation with the countries in which this Embassy has accreditation. Represented in this Embassy are the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Australian Federal Police, and the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade).

Through this website, you will be able to know the advances in the cooperation between Australia and Colombia.  In addition, you will find links and information on Australian society, cultural activities, information for Australian citizens and of course about visas and immigration to Australia. At the same time, we invite you to follow our Facebook page to receive interesting news and important updates.

The bilateral relations between Australia and the Latin American countries are reinforced and dynamized more and more. Australia is a committed partner with Latin America and we want to continue that commitment of collaboration, especially with Colombia with which this Embassy is accredited. In addition, we are pleased to see a growth in person-to-person relations between Australia and Colombia, in particular an increase in the number of tourists in both directions, and an increasing number of exchanges by reason of business or studies. We want to continue working to support these important human bonds.

Due to strong progress in relations with Colombia, we opened this Embassy in Bogotá in June 2017 and two centres for Australian visa applications in Bogota and Medellín in July 2014. In 2016, there were more than 14,000 enrollments of Colombian students in educational institutions in Australia and we have signed a Memoranda of Understanding on Mining and Hydrocarbons. The presence of Australian companies in Colombia is growing and we hope to continue strengthening our bilateral relations and human ties in the coming years.

El futuro se ve muy promisorio - the future looks very promising!
