Please call in advance for an appointment if you are planning to attend in person for consular or passports services.




All Australian citizens must lodge their passport application in person. Please note that child applications should be lodged in person by a parent or person with parental responsibility for the child. The parent or person lodging the application is not required to be an Australian citizen, but will need to bring photographic proof of their own identity to the appointment. For further advice or to make an appointment to lodge your application, please contact us on 06852721 between 0900 and 1200, Monday to Friday.

All passport applications lodged overseas will incur an additional fee. The overseas surcharge will not apply to emergency passport applications.
