In certain circumstances, we can issue an emergency passport if you need to travel urgently and your existing passport has been stolen, damaged or lost.
If you need a new passport more than two years before your current passport is due to expire, and if your current passport hasn’t been lost, stolen or suffered major damage, you may be eligible for a Replacement Passport.
Applications for a replacement passport must be lodged in person. An appointment is required.
Fees are payable in Thai Baht or Australian Dollar by Visa/ Mastercard Credit or Debit card only (no cash payments accepted). Fees are linked to the AUD/THB exchange rate and re-aligned monthly.
Guarantors must either:
- Hold a current Australian passport issued for a minimum period of two years; or
- Belong to specific occupational categories (or local equivalent)
Passport photographs must conform to specific requirements

Camera Operator Guidelines (for photographers):
You should allow a minimum of six weeks to get a new passport or renew one. Missing documents will delay your application. A child passport without full parental consent takes much longer.
The priority processing service is not available in Thailand.
If your passport has been lost or stolen you will need to report this to the Royal Thai Police and provide a police report when you apply for a new Australian passport.
Witnesses to child consent must be present at the time each person with parental responsibility signs the application form. They cannot be related to the child or the person consenting in any way, nor live at the same address.
If your name has changed from what appears on your Australian Birth Certificate or Australian Citizenship Certificate you must provide evidence of your name change. Please read information in this link carefully.
We will only accept a foreign name change certificate if you were born overseas, live overseas and the name change happened overseas after you became an Australian citizen. The foreign name change certificate needs to be legalised. If it’s not in English, it needs to be translated in full by an approved translation service.
Note: Original change of name documents issued by Thai authorities, must be ‘certified genuine signature’ by the Legalisation Division, Department of Consular Affairs of Thailand.
Evidence of name change is also required when a parent’s name on a child’s birth certificate is different to their current name. This does not have to be legalised.
