Canada Australia Consular Services Sharing Agreement (CACSSA)

in Phuket, Krabi and Phrang Nga

BANGKOK (September 18, 2018) – Canada and Australia have added Phuket, Krabi and Phrang Nga, to the Canada-Australia Shared Consular Services Agreement. Shared Consular Services are now found in 30 consular missions around the world.

The Canada and Australia Consular Services Sharing Agreement dates back to the principles that were agreed to by both countries in 1986, recognizing the similarities of our philosophies underlying the provision of consular services. The agreement means more points of service for Canadians and Australians abroad which in turn means quicker and easier access to emergency consular services, as well as more efficient use of public funds.

Canadians living or travelling in Phuket, Krabi and Phrang Nga can now contact the Australian Consulate-General in Phuket for emergency assistance services relating to:

  • Arrest or detention
  • Crime and/or accidents
  • International child abduction and custody cases
  • Repatriation
  • Illness and hospitalization
  • Lost or stolen property
  • Crisis management, and many others

Notary services and passport services will continue to be provided by the Canadian Embassy in Bangkok.  Canadians should continue to consult the Canadian Travel Advice and Advisories and to stay connected through with our various tools and channels, including Twitter (@CanadaThailand), Facebook (@CanadainThailand), and our Travel Smart app.  Details can be found at
