Australian Embassy



An Australian Visa Application Centre (AVAC) has been contracted to collect biometrics and accept visa applications on behalf of the Australian Embassy in Lebanon.

The term 'biometrics' commonly refers to measurable physical characteristics or personal behavioural traits that are unique to an individual such as fingerprints, facial structure, the iris or a person's voice.

The AVAC will collect visa applicant’s biometrics using a quick, discreet and non-intrusive process that captures a facial image with a digital camera and a 10-digit fingerprint scan with a digital finger scanner.
