Is the Australia Consulate jurisdictional?

COVID-19 OVERVIEW: as of December 2020

Most Australian Visas are issued online.

HOWEVER, you can’t come to Australia at this time unless you are exempt or have been granted a travel exemption. You should reconsider your need to apply for an Australian visa at this time. See updates on travel restrictions and visa processing at COVID19 and the border. Certain passport holders may be able to apply for an ETA as part of the Australian ETA mobile app pilot. See: I want to apply for a visa.
