On behalf of all of my colleagues at the Australian Embassy in Moscow, I would like to welcome you to our website. This website is designed for a range of different clients including those seeking information on immigration, visas, business opportunities and consular information, on each of which there are separate distinct sections.
It does not aim to be encyclopaedic but rather suggests linkages where visitors to the site can find a wide range of information not covered specifically on our website.
For Australian citizens we attempt to provide information relevant to living or travelling in the region as well as on events taking place in the region which have an Australian aspect to them.
I hope you find this a useful starting point and I look forward to any feedback on how we can make the website more useful.
Paul Myler, Ambassador
