World Events and Natural Disasters: Assistance to Students

CAPS Staff are available to assist if you are worried or distressed about your family or friends back home following natural or other disasters or events in your home country.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) website provides information about travel to affected areas and relevant telephone contact numbers. This information is updated on a regular basis. Please refer to the DFAT website for the most up-to-date travel and other information.

For information about missing relatives you can contact the Australian Red Cross Tracing Office in Sydney on 02 9229 4266.

To enquire about specific areas in your home country affected by these events, your best contact is your consulate representative. DFAT provides up-to-date information on consulate representatives for your country.
