Australia in Brasília

Australia has an Embassy in Brasilia, a Consulate General in Sao Paulo and an Honorary Consul in Rio de Janeiro.

A broad range of Australian Government departments are represented in Brazil, reflecting the strength and diversity of our bilateral relationship. They include the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; Department of Home Affairs; Department of Education; Department of Employment and Workplace Relations; Department of Industry, Science and Resources; and the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade).

We work to advance Australia’s interests in Brazil, strengthen bilateral relations and expand cooperation, including in education, agriculture, resources and energy, and research and innovation.

Passport, notarial and consular services 

We offer passport, notarial and consular services to Australian citizens living in or visiting Brazil.  Passport and notarial services are by appointment only and can be arranged here. If you are in a life-threatening situation or need immediate assistance, contact the local emergency authorities. If you, or someone you know, needs urgent help, you can also call the 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre in Australia on +61 2 6261 3305.

Economic Diplomacy

We are focused on promoting two-way investment and trade in goods and services, addressing non-tariff barriers to trade, and increasing education, science/technology and innovation links. 

The Austrade office in Sao Paulo aims to attract foreign direct investment, identify market opportunities and promote Australian exporters and education providers.

Public Diplomacy

We aim to promote broader awareness of Australia in Brazil and explain why Australia matters, including advocating Australia as a great destination for education and tourism.‚Äč We support Australian culture and promote Australia’s position as a positive global citizen – as a supporter of the international rules based order and global trade liberalisation and as a strong and trusted partner. We do this in many ways, including through collaborations with local and Australian partners. Contact our Public Diplomacy and Communications team via email [email protected]


The Embassy also manages the Direct Aid Program (DAP), a small grants program funded by Australia's aid budget. DAP supports local communities on projects that reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development. More information about DAP can be found here or by contacting [email protected]
