Additional information about this Canadian Embassy in Australia:
The Canadian Embassy in Australia is also responsible for handling visa and immigration processes from surrounding countries including Bora Bora, Cook Islands, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribati, Nauru, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Niue Island, Norfolk Island, Papua New Guinea, Pitcairn Island, Samoa (American), Samoa (Western), Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Wallis.

Despite the vast distance between them, Canada and Australia have a lot in common. From political systems to laws and histories of British rule to culture, quality of life in both countries is similar. Canada has been an economic, social and political partner with Australia for over 100 years, a partnership strengthened by immigration between the two countries.

Should You Contact a Lawyer First…?

It is important to remember that when applying for Canadian Immigration, you are required to submit your application to the Canadian Embassy of your nationality. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. You should always contact an immigration lawyer to assist you with the procedures associated with the Canadian Embassy of your region because the Canadian Embassy in Australia may have its own set of special rules and procedures.

  • Gerard O’Sullivan

    I tried to do an ETA and I couldn’t get past the first page of preconditions.
    1. What is the country of citizenship? Australia
    2. Are you a person with a valid Canadian permanent residence card? No
    3. Are you any of the following…. A visitor entering Canada by Land or Sea? Yes

    I then press ‘NEXT’

    Then it says,
    This site says.. Based on your answers, for the purpose of your current travel, you may be eligible for a visa to visit Canada. Please contact near Canada embassy.

    Of course, the Canadian Embassy in Sydney only has an automated answering service which is ridiculously frustrating and I also emailed and never received a response!

  • Anita Naidu

    Hi. I am from Fiji. We made four applications online and are now requested to submit our original passports. Is it possible to take the passports in person to the Sydney processing centre or send directly to them instead of going through the VAC centre in Suva?

    • Muga Rajbhandari

      Hello Anita. You must inquire about that directly to the Sydney processing center.
      Regards, Muga

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Hello Julie. Australian citizens do not need a visa to visit Canada. They will have to create an Electronic Travel Authorization form (ETA).
