Your Gateway to the Rainbow Nation
The Mission is situated in Canberra, the capital of Australia.
Apart from the Department of International Relations and
Cooperation, the departments of Trade and Industry and Home Affairs are
also represented at the Mission.
Honorary Consuls are situated in Melbourne, South Australia,
Brisbane (vacant) and Perth.
I would like to take this opportunity to extend warm greetings to members of the South African diaspora living in Australia.
|As you would be aware, next year South Africa celebrates the 20th anniversary of democracy. Various celebratory activities in South Africa and abroad involving government, organized labor, business, civil society, academia, faith-based organizations and the media will take place. The envisaged activities will reflect on the dawn of democracy in South Africa and seek a commitment to practical actions to deepen democracy and build social cohesion towards a better South Africa for all.
Members of the South African diaspora are encouraged to join in organizing their own celebratory events, be it a cultural event or even a picnic, and to lend their support to such activities as well as participating in those organized by Australian-South Africans alone, or with their Australian partners. The diaspora are important members of the South African community and channeling their skills and expertise will contribute to making the future of South Africa work!
South African Election 2014
As South Africans descend on voting stations around the country to register for the upcoming elections this weekend (9 and 10 November), one group of eligible voters will have to wait a little bit longer to register. South Africans living abroad are not able to register until the legislation governing out of country registration and voting has been approved.
Registration of South Africans Abroad
||DIRCO has developed a unique software termed ROSA (Registration of South Africans Abroad) that allows both individual and group travellers to register, update their profiles and de-register their profiles on-line. ROSA is a software program that enables all South African citizens who are travelling, working, living or studying abroad to register online with DIRCO. Registration is voluntary and free, and your information is kept private. Register with us.
