Passport Services

Please visit the Australian Passport Office ( website to complete and print the passport application form.

Refer to the below documents and guidelines for assistance in completing the passport application, documents requirement and passport fee:

Please read each document carefully. You are requested to bring all required original documents to support your passport application on the day of interview. If any original documentation is in Australia, it has to be submitted in the nearest passport office a week before the appointment. Australian High Commission will not accept an incomplete application – this includes not providing applicable documentation listed on the above links. The appointment will be rescheduled for another available date when the relevant documents can be provided.

The preferred mode of payment for passport fee is either by credit/debit card or bank draft in Pakistani Rupees in favour of “Australian High Commission Official Account” for the exact payable amount. Fee in Pakistani Rupees may change due to variance in exchange rate, please re-confirm the fee with us before making the bank draft.

Turnaround for passport application is up to 10 weeks from the day you lodge a complete application. There is no priority processing available in Pakistan.

Once you have completed the application, contact us by phone or email address given below, for the interview appointment. Interview is mandatory for all passport applications. Please note that due to increase in passport demand, there is considerable waiting time for appointments.

Access to the diplomatic enclave in Islamabad, where the Australian High Commission (AHC) is located, has been restricted by the Pakistani Government for security reasons. Access is only possible after you have scheduled an appointment with the AHC.
