Service locations

There is no Australian diplomatic mission in French Polynesia. Our office in Suva, Fiji, manages visa and citizenship services for clients in French Polynesia. 

Polynesian nationals can apply online for most Australian visas and citizenship through ImmiAccount. This is the preferred and most efficient way to apply. Any paper applications (where applicable) should be sent to the Australian High Commission, Suva.
