Please note that all passport applicants have to make an appointment early in advance. Passport applicants are required to apply in person and bring the application form as well as relevant documents after making an appointment. Where minors are concerned, the child and both the parents or the guardian of the applicant must be present at the appointment.
Children’s passports can only be applied for in person (parents/ guardians and child) upon appointment on behalf of the children. From the age of 12 onwards only full biometric passports are being issued which are valid for 6 years.
Passports for children under the age of 18
Since the issuing of biometric passports can take up to several weeks, in case of proven emergencies the German Consulate can issue a temporary passport (valid for 1 year) in addition to the full passport.
If you lose your German passport, you have to report the loss to police and to the issuing authority.
Lost or stolen passport
An appointment is needed at all missions in Australia. Depending on the mission, the appointment can be made online or over the phone.
