Important information

Information regarding availability of passport appointments:

The Consulate General Sydney has opened further appointment slots for the application of passports. However, due to the backlog caused by the lockdown the passport section still experiences a shortage of appointments.

Applicants therefor are kindly requested to only book an appointment in the following cases:

  • the passport will only expire max. 3 months after the booked appointment
  • you need the passport to prolong your residence permit in Australia
  • it is neither a first-time passport application for an adult nor a passport renewal for a passport which expired more than 15 years ago

Please take note that currently, applications for identity cards cannot  be accepted.

We kindly ask for understanding that inquiries regarding being allocated a passport appointment or inquiries not containing specific information on the urgency of the application will not be answered.

Dual citizens not intending to travel to Germany are kindly asked to make use of their Australian/ other passport.

German nationals can enter Germany also with a German identity card (Personalausweis) or an expired (not longer than 1 year) passport. It is therefore by all means recommended to check with the airline if you will be allowed to board with a passport expired less than one year ago. In particular for holders of another citizenship it might well be worth the effort to contact the airline.

The passport and visa hotline of the Consulate General Sydney is currently unavailable. If you have questions, please send us an e-mail

The office of the Honorary Consul General Melbourne is still closed for the public. You can, however, book online now for appointments starting from 8 November 2021. Please be informed that appointments are only available 6 weeks in advance.
For enquiries please contact us by email: melbourne@hk-diplo.de

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

Please note that some missions in Australia are using an online appointment booking system. Please book your appointment in advance.
