Passport and Notarial Services
Passport processing times:
Passports will take at least three weeks to process from lodgement to delivery. It is a good idea to plan the replacement of a passport well ahead of the expiry date and, if you need to travel, ensure you have sufficient time to replace passports and visas where needed. Remember that many countries require that passports have at least six (6) months validity in order to permit entry or obtain a visa.
Fees are payable in Qatari Riyals by credit/debit card only (cash, cheques and other currencies will not be accepted). Fees will be posted on our website on the first working day of each month, and are subject to change based on exchange rates.
See our Legalising Documents page for essential information on the services we can provide. Fees apply for Notarial Services.
Please note that in most cases, authorities in Qatar require Australian documents to be authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Australia and the Embassy of Qatar in Australia before they can be accepted. You will need to confirm the requirements for your document with the Qatar authorities before making an appointment for notarial services at the Australian Embassy.
The Qatari government can require a police clearance to issue a residency permit. Australian police clearances are issued by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in Canberra or by state police. Application forms can be downloaded from the AFP website.
Information about Australian passports, including passport applications, compulsory documents and photograph requirements, is available on the Australian Passport Office website.
All Australian citizens must lodge their passport application in person. We are not able to accept applications by mail or courier. This helps us to protect you, by protecting the security and integrity of your Australian passport.
Please note that child applications should be lodged in person by a parent or person with parental responsibility for the child. The person lodging the application is not required to be an Australian citizen, but will need to present photographic identification for both parents at the appointment.
The frequent traveller passport will be discontinued from 1 December 2017. For further information, click here.
