As from October 2016, we ask that all Passport and Notarial clients make an appointment to undertake Passport Interviews and present notarial documents at the Embassy. You can book your appointment with our Passports and Notarials team through the button below.
Traffic disruption near Embassy
The municipality of The Hague is currently undertaking road works in the neighbourhood of the Embassy on Carnegielaan, Groot Hertoginnenlaan and Laan van Meerdervoort.
As a result, visitors to the Embassy may experience traffic delays and difficulty parking near the Embassy. The works are expected to take several weeks to complete.
The Embassy will remain accessible throughout this period and opening times are unaffected.
Changes to the issue of Australian Passports in 2016
As of 1 January 2016, a number of changes will be made to the issuance of Australian Passports. These include revised fees, and new procedures for certain types of application. Please check the Passports page for more information.
