Passport and Notarial Services

Passport and Notarial Services

The Embassy is offering passport and notarial services by appointment only. Appointments are available between 9am and 12pm, Sunday to Thursday. To make an appointment, please click on the button below.

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.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) uses third-party software (Setmore) to manage the Embassy's appointments. Your personal information (including your name and contact details) will be collected by DFAT via Setmore to book your appointment and for related purposes. By proceeding with this booking, you are consenting to the collection of this information by Setmore on DFAT’s behalf for these purposes. If this information is not collected, DFAT’s ability to arrange your appointment will be limited. Your personal information will be handled by Setmore in accordance with Setmore’s Privacy Policy, and by DFAT in accordance with DFAT’s Privacy Policy.

Appointments are not required for the following services:

  • Passport collections – 9:00 am to 12 pm (Sunday-Wednesday)
  • Enquiries – please email/phone the Embassy during office hours

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.

Australian Passports

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.
