Booking Policy

Clients should arrive 10 minutes prior to appointments for security screening. If you arrive late for your appointment, you will need to reschedule to when an officer is available.

Bookings can be made two months in advance. We request that you do not book more than one appointment for the same service. Refer to your notification email if you need to edit or cancel your appointment (see example below).

Please ensure you select the correct type of service when you make the appointment. If you select the wrong service, we may not be able to help you during your appointment.

  • To provide better service to clients by reducing wait times
  • To balance the demand for our services throughout the week
  • To increase the efficiency of passport and notarial services so that we can increase and improve our services
