Welcome to the homepage of the Australian Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden
This Embassy is privileged to serve Australia's interests in Sweden as well as in Estonia, Finland and Latvia. At this site you will find contact details for the Embassy and Australia's consulates in this region.
While Australia traditionally has been associated with its rich and unique flora and fauna, there is so much more to discover. Australia has a leading edge economy, exporting high-technology products such as telecommunications, medical equipment and computer software, while maintaining its traditionally strong position as an exporter of commodities, such as coal, iron ore, wheat and beef. Australia is today not just attracting surfers and backpackers but global corporations and small-to-medium size businesses who find Australia's well-developed and friendly environment a perfect hub for their Asian activities.
Our aim with these pages is to provide you with a resource guide to help you locate the information you need on Australia. Whether you are interested in doing business or investing in Australia, visiting on a holiday, studying or just learning more about our country, we hope you find this site of use. If you are an Australian citizen there is also information here on how the Embassy can assist you. We hope you will explore this site and discover the wealth of our country's fascinating diversity - we bid you welcome to us and to Australia.
