Australian Embassy


Australian Passport Information

The Australian Passport Office (APO) is currently seeing strong demand for passports. For this reason, it is advising its customers to apply for or renew their passport well ahead of their planned travel dates. The APO is therefore recommending, at least for now, that they allow up to six weeks to get a new passport.

Appointments for Passport and Notarial Services

The Embassy is open from Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm, excluding observed public holidays.

The Embassy is currently operating by appointment only for passport and notarial services. To book an appointment please email the Embassy's reception at [email protected] and/or our Consular inbox at [email protected]

Alternatively, you can book an appointment through the Embassy's switchboard on +95 12307410.

Lodging a Passport Application

All applications must be lodged in person by the applicant or in the case of a minor (under 18) by one person with parental responsibility for the minor.  For 16/17 applicants must attend the interview with one person with parental responsibility.
