Message from the Australian Ambassador McCourt
13 May 2016
Welcome to the Australian Embassy in Harare’s website. From Harare, the Embassy looks after our bilateral relationships with Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Democratic Republic of Congo and Republic of Congo.
The Embassy provides consular support for Australians travelling in these countries (with the valuable assistance of the Canadian Embassy in Kinshasa), and also implements and oversees our development cooperation effort in these countries. Our development cooperation effort ranges from very large projects primarily in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene sector (WASH) to very small locally-targeted projects. In all of these, Australia seeks to support sustainable development and empowerment, particularly of women and girls.
In addition, the Embassy is focussed on providing support for Australian businesses operating, or seeking to operate, in our countries of accreditation. This includes a significant presence of Australian mining companies. We also help promote Australian education services to students from Zimbabwe and in the region, Australia as a tourist destination, and other opportunities for business.
We hope you find this website a valuable resource, and if you can’t find the information you are looking for, the site contains extensive links to other information, including about visas to Australia.

The Australian Embassy shares the concerns of many Zimbabweans at the violence which has occurred over recent weeks in Zimbabwe. The use of violence is not acceptable under any circumstance.
The Australian Embassy wishes to emphasise that the rule of law, respect for human rights, right to free speech, freedom of assembly and other democratic freedoms are at the heart of the Zimbabwean Constitution and must be respected by all parties. We encourage the Government of Zimbabwe to ensure the democratic freedoms of all Zimbabweans are fully protected.
