Passport Services


Passport clients are advised that ALL Passport application forms (simplified Adult Renewal PC7 and PC8) MUST be lodged in person, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. The requirement that all applicants attend an interview is mandated by Australian national standards for identity management.

Child applications are to be lodged by one parent or guardian with parental responsibility.  Children under the age of 16 do not need to accompany the parent to the interview.

From 1 January 2016, child applicants aged 16 or 17 must accompany their parent to lodge their passport application.

Please contact the Embassy to schedule an appointment.  Passport appointments are available between 9.30am – 12.30pm Monday to Thursday. Clients are advised not to book their travel before they are in receipt of their travel document.

You should allow a minimum of six weeks to get a new passport or renew one. To help avoid delays, before you submit your application, make sure you: provide all the necessary information meet all the requirements.

Child passport applications that do not include full parental consent take longer to process. Normal turnaround times do not apply.

Please carefully review all of the information provided below BEFORE contacting the Passports Office at the Embassy.

Your photo is critical to the usability and security of your passport. The facial recognition technology used in conjunction with Australian passports makes border processing more efficient and reduces the potential for identity fraud. If your photo does not meet the standards detailed below, your passport may not work at automated borders. The size of your head in the photograph must comply with Australian passport requirements, which differ from Mongolian passport photograph standards. Familiarise yourself with these requirements and ensure you submit compliant photos. Your application may be rejected because of unsuitable photographs.
If you are unsure how to attach your photographs to the application form, leave them loose in the envelope. DO NOT fasten them in any way using clips, staples, sticky / sello tape or any other type of fasteners which damage photographs and render them useless.   

Name Changes

If your name has changed from the name on your most recent evidence of Australian citizenship you will need to provide evidence of this change with your application before a passport can be issued in your new name. You must include originals of documents that explain all name changes with your application (with any English translations where required).
If you were married in Australia, you must provide the marriage certificate issued by the Australian Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages (RBDM). A marriage certificate issued by a celebrant or religious leader is not acceptable for passport purposes.

If you were born in Australia and have changed your name through marriage overseas or by any other means, you will need to register a change of name with RBDM in the state or territory of your birth and obtain the name change certificate which must accompany your completed passport application. You must also provide your original overseas marriage certificate.
