Australian representation in Taiwan
In the absence of formal representation in Taiwan, the Australian Office in Taipei unofficially represents Australia's interests. The Australian Office's business arm, the Australian Business Centre, promotes Australian exports to Taiwan and two-way investment between Australia and Taiwan, and is the first contact point for Australian firms wanting to do business in Taiwan. The Australian Office also facilitates the issue of Australian visas for visitors, students and temporary residents, and handles general bilateral relations and public affairs. Similarly, it handles passport applications and the provision of assistance to Australian citizens in Taiwan. The Australian Education International (AEI) commenced operations in Taiwan in July 1995, promoting Australian education opportunities to prospective Taiwanese students.
The Australia-China Council promotes mutual understanding and fosters people-to-people relations with China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
