Immigration Section no longer receiving phone calls

The Australian Embassy in Beirut no longer takes telephone enquiries on immigration and visa issues. Your call will not be forwarded to an immigration officer and you will not receive any immigration advice over the phone. Information about visas, citizenship and migration matters is available from the website or on Visa, immigration and citizenship on this site.

You can only contact the visa section via the online web form.  The web form page should answer most questions you have. If you still have questions or enquiries, please select from the available options.


Remember to be informed and be prepared when you travel:
