Visits to UK Houses of Parliament

House of Commons

The Australian High Commission receives a small allocation of request forms in order for Australian citizens to visit the Public Gallery of the House of Commons for Question Time on Wednesday afternoons,  including Prime Minister's Question Time.  Please note, these are NOT passes, they do not guarantee entry, only that you can stand in the queue as a foreign national.  

UK ticket holders are given priority so you will only be considered for entry if there is space after UK ticket holders.

For Recess Dates when the House of Commons will not be  sitting, click here.

If you would like to arrange a request form to Prime Minster\'s Question Time, please send an email to General Enquiries stating:

• the day you would like to visit
• the name and Australian passport number of each visitor
• a contact telephone number in the UK

Each visitor to the House of Commons must then collect their request form from the Australian High Commission and show their Australian passport.
