The Foreign Influence Transparency scheme requires that individuals or entities register certain activities (registrable activities) that are undertaken in Australia on behalf of a foreign principal, for the purpose of political or governmental influence.

The documents below are designed to help you determine whether you need to register under the scheme. They provide information on how the scheme works, including an explanation of key considerations such as what a registrable activity is, who a foreign principal may be, and the exemptions available.

If you have registration obligations under the scheme, please go to the Registration portal to register.

If you have any further questions after reading through the documents below, please contact us using the enquiry form.
