The Australian Consulate-General will resume full-time operating hours albeit on reduced staffing from 5 July 2020. All client services continue to be by appointment only including those for passport collection and lodgement of parental consent for passport applications. Appointments for passport and notarial services can now be booked via Setmore with the exception of passport collection and lodgement of parental consent which should be booked by email to [email protected]
Please note, all visitors will be required to undergo health screening prior to entering the Consulate. Only one person should attend the appointment. Children under 16 years do not need to attend passport interviews.
If it is out of hours or an emergency (death, arrest of an Australian citizen) please contact the Consular Emergency Centre in Canberra (Australia) on +61 2 6261 3305.

Before your appointment
You should arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment to allow time for a security screening. If you arrive late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule to another day.
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.
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 assist you and you will be required to make a new appointment.
Appointments were introduced for the following reasons:
- To provide better service to clients through reduced waiting 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.
