Changes to passport applications from 1 July 2015

We would like to draw to your attention to changes to Australian Passport overseas application procedures.

Personal Interview Requirement

The Passports office at the Embassy of Australia in Mexico City does not book appointments you are welcome to come in Monday to Friday, from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm, and 2:30 to 4:30 pm.

The Australian Honorary Consulates in the region work on an appointment basis. Please contact them by email. 

Applicants in Cuba and Dominican Republic, where Australia has no mission, will be required to present for interview at their nearest or most convenient Australian mission. Minors under 16 years of age are not required to present at the interview, one person with paternal responsibility for the child must however present for an interview.

Overseas Surcharge
From 1 July 2015, passport applications lodged overseas will incur an additional fee (overseas surcharge). The fee will not apply to emergency passport applications.
