If you reside outside the UK and wish to lodge your application at the Australian High Commission in London, you must provide a UK address to which the passport can be sent or be prepared to collect the passport in person. Collections of passports are only available using the priority processing service (additional fee applies). Applications for children can only be lodged in the country where the child is residing, unless the child is present at the interview. We cannot post passports to an address outside the UK.

Applicants residing in Northern Ireland can lodge their application with the Australian Embassy in Dublin. For further information on lodging your application in Dublin please click here.
