Following an incident on 7 April in which a truck was driven into crowds on a pedestrian street in central Stockholm, resulting in injuries and deaths, Swedish authorities have advised persons to continue to avoid central Stockholm around Drottninggatan due to the ongoing investigation and disruptions to public transport and roads in the vicinity. We recommend you remain vigilant and follow the instruction of local authorities.
As a result of this incident, the Swedish Government has introduced stricter border control measures that will remain in place until at least 17 April. We recommend that you carry your passport or a Swedish national ID card at all times.
If you are an Australian requiring consular assistance as a result of this incident or have concerns about friends or loved ones who may be affected, please contact the Consular Emergency Centre on +61 2 6261 3305.
Welcome to the Australian Embassy in Sweden
This Embassy is pleased to serve Australia's interests in Sweden as well as in Finland, Latvia and Estonia.
While Australia has traditionally been associated with its rich and unique flora and fauna, there is so much to discover beyond its natural beauty. Australia has a cutting edge economy with an emphasis on innovation, exporting high-technology products such as telecommunications, medical equipment and computer software, while maintaining its traditionally strong position as an exporter of commodities, such as coal, iron ore, wheat and beef. Global corporations and small-to-medium sized businesses have found Australia's well-developed and friendly business environment a perfect hub for their Asian activities. But besides the business community, Australia continues to attract millions of students, backpackers and holidaymakers year after year.
Our aim with this website is to provide you with a useful resource to help you locate the information you need about Australia. Whether you are interested in doing business or investing in Australia, intend on travelling to Australia for holiday, work or study, or just want to learn more about our country, or if you are an Australian citizen in the region and seek information on the services the Embassy provides, we hope you find this site useful.
