Strengthening Australia’s relations with East Java

Welcome to the website of the Australian Consulate-General in Surabaya.

The establishment of the Australian Consulate-General in Surabaya was announced by Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Julie Bishop MP, on 26 February 2017.

The Consulate-General promotes business, education, people-to-people and cultural links between Australia and East Java, Central Java, and Special Region of Yogyakarta.

The establishment of a Consulate-General in Surabaya, Australia’s fourth diplomatic post in Indonesia is evidence of Australia close relationship with Indonesia. Australia’s diplomatic footprint in Indonesia includes the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, and Consulate-Generals in Makassar and Bali.

The Surabaya Consulate-General will focus on enhancing trade and building economic partnership opportunities in East Java, including in financial services, education, health, manufacturing and infrastructure. East Java accounts for about 15 per cent of Indonesia’s gross domestic product and Surabaya, as Indonesia’s second largest city, is an increasingly important destination for Australian trade and investment.

Our Consulate-General will also work to bolster people-to-people links in the dynamic eastern region of Indonesia and provide consular and other services to Australians in East Java.
