The Australian Embassy in Tallinn is Australia’s first ‘pop-up post’. Our Ambassador to Estonia is operating from an office in Tallinn during April and May. Outside this period, the Ambassador will visit Tallinn a number of times and will maintain relations through the active use of phone, video conferencing, social media and websites.
The Australian Embassy in Stockholm will retain responsibility for consular services for Australians in Estonia, supported by Australia’s Honorary Consul in Tallinn.
