UN and Australian Autonomous Sanctions

Australian sanction laws implement United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sanctions regimes and Australian autonomous sanctions regimes.

Sanctions restrict activities that relate to particular countries, goods and services, persons or entities. Further information regarding the sanction regimes currently being enforced is available from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

The University of Adelaide is required to abide by the sanctions as they apply to countries where there is a prohibition on providing a “sanctioned service”. This involves specific types of training or dealing with a “designated person or entity”.

Are you an applicant from one of the following countries? If yes, sanctions regimes apply.

Countries on the UN and autonomous sanctions list:

  • Central African Republic
  • Crimea and Sevastopol
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo
  • Eritrea
  • Iran
  • Lebanon
  • Libya
  • Myanmar
  • North Korea
  • Russia
  • Somalia
  • Sudan
  • Syria
  • Zimbabwe

If you are an applicant who is a citizen of country listed above, you should be aware that the University will be required to complete a detailed assessment of your proposed research project against the current sanction regimes.

The nature of the project will be examined, as well as the goods and equipment you will use in your research.

Some assessments will be referred to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) for further consideration so it’s important to allow sufficient time for the processing of your application for admission and/or scholarship.

Once your project is approved, your application will be considered in the scholarship round open at the time of approval.

If there are any changes to your program, thesis or research topic, a new assessment will be required and you should contact the Graduate Centre.
