Australian Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan:  Mr. Paul Wojciechowski

Contact Information

Australia’s residential representation in Afghanistan and the Australian Embassy in Kabul was closed on 28 May 2021. DFAT officials will visit Afghanistan regularly from a residential Post elsewhere in the region. It is Australia’s expectation that this measure will be temporary and that we will resume a permanent presence in Kabul once circumstances permit.
