Immigration and Border Protection


The Australian Consulate-General in Noumea does not process visa or citizenship applications.

Information on visas, citizenship and border protection (including customs) is available on the website of the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs).

Home Affairs in the Australian High Commission in Suva, Fiji, has the responsibility for managing Immigration and Citizenship Services for New Caledonia, as well as Fiji, Federated States of Micronesia, French Polynesia, Guam, Republic of Nauru, Northern Marianas, Palau, Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Wallis and Futuna & Vanuatu.

Home Affairs utilises Australian Visa Application Centres (AVAC) across the Pacific for visa lodgements, client enquiries and biometrics collection. TT Services manage the AVACs across the Pacific.

Home Affair advises that you should not book flights or make travel commitments until you have an appropriate visa to travel to Australia. Home Affairs will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by clients whose visa application was finalised later than expected or where an application is unsuccessful.

Applications or enquiries regarding Australian visas, immigration and citizenship for residents of New Caledonia, French Polynesia and Wallis and Futuna are managed by TT Services Noumea.
