How to obtain an Australian passport in Portugal
Child applicants aged 16 or 17 are now issued with a 10 year passport instead of the five year passport currently issued to minors under 16.
Applications must still include parental consent and the applicant must attend the interview along with the lodging parent.
The application fee is the same as for adults, reflecting the longer validity of the passport to be issued. The issue of a 10 year passport is not optional.
Please note the following procedures for applying or renewing an Australian passport overseas:
(1) Passport applications, including renewal applications, MUST be lodged in person at the Australian Embassy in Lisbon. No exceptions will be made regardless of where you reside in Portugal. Please book an appointment for lodging your application.
All child passport applications must be lodged in person at the Embassy by a parent/person with parental responsibility for the child. A valid and original personal identity document of the person lodging the application must be presented as proof of identity. Minors under the age of 16 years are not required to attend the interview.
(2) ALL passport applications lodged overseas incur an additional overseas fee.
The additional overseas fee is as follows:
Adult (including senior) applications – AUD 103
Child applications – AUD 52
The fee does NOT apply to Emergency Passport applications.
The Passport section at the Australian Embassy in Lisbon operates by appointments only from 10.00am-11.30am and 2.00pm-4.00 pm, Monday to Friday. The Embassy is closed on the following public holidays.
To arrange for an interview, please call 21 310 1500.
