“Please email Consular.Phuket@dfat.gov.au with your personal particulars page of your passport and a copy of your current visa. There will be no fee applied for this service,” said a notice posted on the consulate’s official website this afternoon (See here.)

“We will not consider providing these letters to those who are traveling on Tourist Visas,” the notice added.

“Australian Government advice remains that Australians should seek to return home while commercial options remains to do so,” the notice said.
