17.c. Are all entitlements the same?

Non-interpretative - straight application of the law.

No. The various Diplomatic Privileges and Immunities Acts administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) detail the entitlements of the various countries and organisations. Each country’s entitlement is based on a broadly reciprocal arrangement with the concessions offered to Australian diplomats in the home country. All missions, posts and organisations have been advised of their individual entitlements by DFAT.
