Consular Outreach Visits
Due to the high demand of services during the Consular Outreach Visits in 2017, the Australian Embassy will endeavour to undertake outreach visits every 6 - 8 weeks. Please note that these dates are subject to change and are dependent on available resources.

The dates for the remainder of 2018 will be advertised in due course.
During the outreach visits, we will provide the following services:
* Passport applications - Please ensure you bring the completed Renewal Passport Application form (PC7) or Overseas Passport Application form (PC8) which can be downloaded from the website, (www.passports.gov.au) and all supporting documents (original and copies) before coming to an outreach visit.
* Notarial services
* Statutory declarations for marriage, retirement visas, and witnessing for driving licence renewals
* Witnessing documents
* Certified true copies of documents (please ensure you bring the original and a photocopy of each document with you)
Credit card payment is preferred. Please contact the Consular section on 02 344 6300 or email email@example.com prior to your visit if you require further details and/or to confirm fees payable.
The Australian Embassy wishes to advise that there will be an increase in notarial fees from 1 January 2017. The new fee structure will better align with the commercial rates charged by public notaries. The new fee schedule is available on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s website.
Notarial fees have not increased since 1 July 2000. From 2018 onwards, notarial service fees will increase annually in line with the Consumer Price Index published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Notarial fees are legislated according to the Consular Fees Act 1955 and consular staff have no discretion in applying these fees.
Please note that the Embassy is unable to confirm the length of validity of signed Statutory Declarations as this is a matter for Thai authorities. We advise you to contact the Thai Department of Consular Affairs for further advice on Statutory Declarations.
