Lost or Stolen Passports
If you are outside Australia and your passport is lost or stolen you must immediately report it at www.passports.gov.au or to your nearest Australian Embassy or Consulate.
This should be done as soon as possible. You will be required to confirm your identity, and then asked about the circumstances of the loss. If you wish to replace your passport, you can also complete the appropriate passport application form online. If you don’t have internet access you can call +61 2 6261 3305 for 24 hour service.
Passport Renewal or New Applications
You should first complete the application forms for your new passport or renewal online at www.passports.gov.au and obtain two passport photos. All passport applications require an in-person interview. Contact us to schedule an interview, noting we do not accept walk-in enquiries at the Embassy or Consulates in Turkey. All visitors must have a pre-arranged appointment.
You must provide two recent identical colour photographs of yourself with your passport application. The passport photograph guidelines outline the standards and will help you provide suitable photographs, so that your application is not delayed.
Passports are produced in Australia and you should allow up to three weeks to receive your new passport. There is no priority service available overseas. If you need to travel urgently, please advise your interviewing officer when you lodge your application. In some circumstances you may be eligible for an Emergency Passport.
The Australian Passport Office publishes the fees for issuing an Australian passport, depending on the type and validity of the document. For applicants located overseas, in addition to the cost of the document, you will pay an overseas surcharge. Please note, the Australian Embassy and Consulates in Turkey do not accept cash payments, we only accept debit or credit cards. The Australian Dollar amounts listed on the Passports website are converted to Turkish Lira in line with periodic exchange rates.
