Services for Australians
The Australian Consulate-General in Shenyang is in a temporary office while the Chancery is established. Australians should continue to seek assistance from the Australian Embassy in Beijing in the first instance. The Embassy's website and Weibo have the most up-to-date information for Australians in China.
Message from Consul-General Broughton Robertson
The Australian Consulate-General in Shenyang welcomes contact by Australians temporarily or permanently resident in Northeast China. Our Consulate looks forward to providing full consular services when our chancery opens later this year, but in the meantime, we are working closely with our Beijing Embassy to provide services to Australians based here.
Please email us your preferred contact details and Northeast China city of residence if you wish to stay in contact (Shenyang.Consulate@dfat.gov.au).
