Australian Consulate-General in Bali - Odalan Ceremony 2017.

Message from the Consul-General in Bali  

Welcome to the website of the Australian Consulate-General in Bali. This website outlines important information for Australians travelling to or living in Bali and West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), including how to contact the Consulate-General and the range of consular and passport services available. We also provide a limited range of consular services to Canadian citizens. Information on Australian visas and citizenship is also available on this website.

I urge all Australians planning to travel to Bali or NTB, as well as all resident Australians, to:
 

  • Check the smartraveller.gov.au website for the latest travel advice on Indonesia, including general advice on security and health matters. You can also subscribe to automatically receive email updates whenever the travel advisory is changed.

  • Register on-line so that in the event of an emergency, such as a natural disaster or a family emergency, we can contact you.

  • Ensure that each person travelling in your party (including children) is covered by adequate travel insurance. While Bali and NTB offer a great array of experiences and activities, it is important that your travel insurance covers everything you could potentially engage in.

  • Carefully read the advice under Services for Australians and ensure that people travelling in your party are aware of the potential problems that may be encountered.

Direct Aid Program for 2017 – 2018

The Direct Aid Program is a flexible small grants scheme funded by the Australian Government and administered by the Australian Consulate-General in Bali. The Consulate-General is pleased to invite interested non-government organisations (NGOs), Yayasans and community groups to submit proposals that support sustainable community development in Bali and West Nusa Tenggara (NTB). You can submit your application for funding under the Direct Aid Program 2017 – 2018 starting from 8 July until 31 August 2017.

All applications will be considered.  As in the past, we will look to continue to support women and girls’ empowerment, child and youth and other disadvantaged groups, including those with disabilities. This year, we also have an interest in projects that address environmental and sustainable tourism, especially at the village level.

DAP projects should be aimed primarily at achieving practical and tangible outcomes, and should be self-sustainable beyond the term of the grant. Below are links to some of the projects we have approved in the past.
