Welcome to the website of the Australian Embassy in Cairo. This website is designed to provide you with information about Australia and Egypt, and the services the Embassy is able to offer.
The Australian Embassy in Cairo is responsible for covering Australia's relations with not only Egypt, but also Sudan, Syria and Eritrea, where we do not maintain Embassies.
There is an extensive array of information online about Australia and the Australian Government and this site may be used as a tool to direct you to these sites.
For those seeking information about Egypt and travel to Egypt, a good place to start is with the website of the Egyptian Embassy in Canberra.
Please feel free to contact us if you require more information or assistance. The Embassy's e-mail address is: email@example.com

ANZAC DAY 2014
ANZAC Day is a significant national day of commemoration for Australians and New Zealanders. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the First World War. On 25 April 1915, the ANZACs landed at Gallipoli and began seven months of intense combat that marked the arrival of two young nations on the world stage.
This year’s commemorations were hosted by the Embassy of Australia in Cairo. Australian and New Zealand residents, family and friends attended the official ANZAC Day commemorative service and wreath laying ceremony.
The Embassy of Australia and the Embassy of New Zealand in Cairo each take turns hosting the ceremony, which is held annually. Please refer to this website for information on next year's commemoration.
Australia Awards provide access to postgraduate education, training and professional development opportunities for suitably qualified Egyptians. Applicants from Egypt are eligible for Masters under Australia Awards Scholarships and short course training under Australia Awards Africa Fellowships.
