Australian Embassy (Abu Dhabi, UAE) in Dubai Directory

      

It has come to the Embassy’s attention that there is an office of the Hutt River Province in Dubai and that they are allegedly selling travel documents. We would like to advise that the Australian Government does not recognise the Hutt River Province, legally or in any other way. The area of land which is described as the Hutt River Province is a privately-owned wheat-growing property on the Hutt River, north of Geraldton in the State of Western Australia. It has no special status. It has no separate sovereignty and remains subject to the Australian Constitution and the laws of Australia. Following from its policy of not recognising the Hutt River Province, the Australian Government does not recognise the royal titles nor titles of office, such as Head of State, State minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs assumed by the family owning the property nor the use of terms such as consulates and principality in relation to the Hutt River Province. Documents purporting to be passports issued by the Hutt River Province are not recognised as valid travel documents by the Australian Government.
