We have been told that individuals can contact the Department of Immigration and Citizenship directly to ask about their loved ones.

If someone has any information or requires information about the rescue off Cocos Islands, they need to telephone 131 881 and select option 1. They should then be able to speak to someone who can help.

Please try this option first and if you have not been able to get the information you need feel free to contact Red Cross Tracing on 02 9229 4266.
