The identities of Australians stranded overseas have been accidentally exposed for the third time in as many months.
At least 15 Australians in France have had their details shared by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in a data breach.
One person involved has described the privacy breach as adding insult to injury.
Foreign Minister Marise Payne said her department was working to ensure it did not happen again.
“I am very sorry that these events have occurred,” she told ABC radio on Friday.
“I know our officials are trying very hard to support as many Australians as they possibly can overseas.
“It is important to be careful with people’s private information and that has absolutely been reinforced to my department.”
More than 32,000 stranded Australians remain overseas.
The weekly cap of 6000 international arrivals will be discussed at a national cabinet meeting on Friday.
A repatriation flight from London is also due to arrive in Darwin around noon and the 161 passengers will be taken to Howard Springs for two weeks quarantine.
