About us

Some may wonder why the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has State Offices. The old distinctions between domestic and foreign and trade policies were never particularly clear, but as a result of the increasingly globalised world we live in, are ever more blurred. It is therefore essential that DFAT maintains strong linkages with the broader community, participating in international relations and trade, at the state and local government level, with business, with academia and with NGOs.

The Victoria State Office helps DFAT in this important task, providing a range of services in support of our Portfolio Ministers and Parliamentary Secretary, assisting the Victorian Government in its overseas endeavours, maintaining contact with the business community and assisting the general public, where needed, with consular services.

Passports and documents for legalisation cannot be lodged at the Victoria State Office.

Economic Diplomacy

Economic diplomacy is a key priority for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.  The Charter on Economic Diplomacy and Australian Business outlines the services the Foreign Affairs and Trade portfolio provides to business.  The department also maintains a business engagement page with useful information, resources and updates for business.

The Victoria State Office plays a key role in delivering economic diplomacy in Victoria in close consultation with business and the State Government of Victoria. The Victoria State Office can assist arranging speakers and putting your business in touch with relevant contacts in our international network.

Business Victoria is a comprehensive online resource designed to help you start, run and grow your business managed by the State Government of Victoria.

Protocol

The Victoria State Office provides protocol services to the Consular Corps. These services include processing of arrival and departure notifications, diplomatic visa renewals and issue of identity cards, airport facilitation for foreign dignitaries and representation at Corps’ functions.
