We encourage all Canadian citizens travelling in the region to register with our Registration of Canadians Abroad service. This will allow the Government of Canada to notify you in case of an emergency abroad or a personal emergency at home. The service also enables you to receive important information before or during a natural disaster or civil unrest. Canadians may also register with the local Australian diplomatic or consular mission in countries covered by the Canada-Australia Consular Services Sharing Agreement.
