Canada has closed its embassy in Caracas. Australians no longer have consular help available to them in Venezuela and will need to contact the Australian Embassy in Colombia.

We understand making international phone calls from Venezuela can be a challenge. To request emergency consular assistance, please send an email to [email protected] to request a phone call.  A consular officer will return the call. Be sure to provide a telephone number where we can communicate with you.

Federal Elections 2022

The next federal election will be held on 21 May 2022.  If you are still in Australia, you can pre-poll vote from 9 May 2022.

The AEC recommends overseas voters cast a postal vote in this election.

If you plan to be overseas at the time of the election, make sure you check your enrolment and request a postal vote as soon as possible on the AEC website. https://www.aec.gov.au/overseas/voting.htm

Australians in Colombia and Venezuela are encouraged to vote via postal vote, which can either be posted to the AEC directly, or mailed or dropped off to the Embassy.

To send in your postal vote, please send to: Carrera 9 # 115-06 Ofc 2003 Edf. Tierra Firme, Bogota, Cundinamarca, 110111.

To drop off your postal vote, please make an appointment here: https://australianembassybogota.setmore.com/ .  Postal votes must be returned as quickly as possible to ensure they are received by the AEC in time to be counted.

What is the time frame for registering to vote?

Enrolment closes at 8pm on 18 April 2022, one week after the election is called.

How early before the election are postal votes be sent out?

The Australian Electoral Commission will start sending postal votes immediately after the declaration of nominations. Postal votes are expected to be sent from 26 April 2022.

When do requests for postal votes close?

Requests for postal votes will close on 18 May 2022. The Australian Electoral Commission recommends you apply for a postal vote as soon as possible to ensure there is enough time for it to be posted to you and returned to the Australian Electoral Commission by 3 June 2022.
