Consulate-General Lae


Welcome to the Australian Consulate-General in Lae, Papua New Guinea.  Australia’s then-Minister for Foreign Affairs, Julie Bishop, formally opened the Consulate-General on 8 March 2017.

Lae is the principal metropolis for northern PNG. The city and surrounding Morobe Province contain thriving agricultural, manufacturing, services and resources industries.  Lae is home to many long-term Australian residents and short-term business visitors.  Australians also travel to Lae to visit the Lae War Cemetery, a significant site for Australian and Papua New Guinean soldiers killed in World War II.

The Consulate-General supports business, development and people-to-people links and provides consular, passport and notarial services to Australian citizens.
