Protocol Guidelines

10. Locally engaged staff

Missions, posts and international organisations can employ Australian citizens or permanent residents as locally engaged staff (LES). They cannot sponsor persons from their own or third countries to work in non-accredited roles in their offices in Australia. Protocol Branch must be informed when a LES employee begins or finishes employment by completing a Locally Engaged Staff Member Commencement/Departure form.
