Direct Aid Program


The Direct Aid Program is managed globally through overseas Australian missions.* It is very important that you select the correct Direct Aid Program that operates in the country you are applying for.  Your application will not be processed if it is received through the wrong overseas Australian mission.

A list of Australian missions overseas which have received DAP allocations, and the countries in which these missions administer the program is available at: 

Please contact the Australian mission overseas that administers DAP in the country you are applying for. For Australian mission contact details see
