Directorate I had a residentura in Australia from 1955. Until December1955 the residentura had neither a courier nor a cipher connection. From 1956 – 1958 the Deputy Resident was Lieutenant Bedřich Hála "Popelka (Cinderella)" (vice-consul). The residentura built its first contacts in scientific-technical intelligence and the headquarters in Prague launched operations to infiltrate the Czechoslovak emigration.
In 1989, besides the cipherer, there were no Directorate I servicemen stationed at the residentura
