Advice for Australians living, working or studying overseas

If you’re a long-term overseas-based Australian, you need to consider the accessibility and quality of health care and whether you have the support systems you’d need if you got sick or had to spend an extended period somewhere. Depending on where you are, you might find your freedom to move heavily restricted and borders difficult to cross.  

If you decide to remain overseas, wherever you are, you should:

  • Follow the advice of local authorities, particularly regarding any self-isolation or social distancing guidance or rules
  • Take care to minimise your risk of exposure to COVID-19
  • Read and subscribe to Smartraveller for the latest information and advice. (You can also subscribe to critical updates by SMS)
  • Stay in touch with family and friends. Let them know where you are and that you’re OK.
  • Read our information about COVID-19 and consular assistance – there are some useful contacts in there should you need them.

About us

Australia's relationship with Estonia

Australia and Estonia share warm bilateral relations, underpinned by strong people-to-people links through the sizeable Estonian community in Australia. The 2016 census in Australia recorded over 9,500 people who identified as being of Estonian ancestry.  Australia has the sixth-largest expatriate Estonian community after Finland, Russia, Sweden, Canada and the USA.

Our countries share a commitment to liberal and democratic values, to protecting and promoting human rights, to defending the rules-based international order, and to open and progressive trade policy. 

Australia was one of the first countries to recognise Estonia's return to independence in August 1991.
