Visas and Migration


Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Migration Branch of the Australian Embassy in Madrid. We are an overseas office of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). We service clients who are usually resident in Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Andorra and Monaco.
