FIJIANS living in Australia who are yet to register to vote in the upcoming general election will have the last chance to do so from this Thursday.

And those who haven't registered have been requested to contact the Fiji High Commission in Canberra or the Consul General office in Sydney.

Acting head of mission Cheryl Brown-Irava said the commission was committed to assisting the Fijian Elections Office in reaching and registering as many citizens who would like to vote in the election.

"As this will be the last chance for Fijian citizens to register in Australia, all eligible voters are urged to make use of this opportunity," Ms Brown-Irava said.

"And those willing to get registered must be 18 years of age and hold a valid Fijian passport."

Registration will take place in areas in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, Northern Territory, Victoria and Western Australia.
