The High Commissioner is based at the British High Commission in Canberra but travels regularly to the States and Territories.

In carrying out these tasks the British High Commissioner and her/his staff deal with political, commercial, defence and economic questions of interest to Britain and Australia. The High Commissioner is also responsible for press and cultural relations, and the issue of British passports, entry clearances and visas through the High Commission Consular Section.
