Online Appointment System

All appointments are scheduled through our FREE online system. Once you have made an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with your reference number, and the date and time of your appointment. We ask for your understanding that appointment bookings will not be confirmed by telephone or separate email. You will also receive information on what supporting documentation to bring. We recommend you read the information carefully in order to be fully prepared for your appointment.

Passport Information

If your name has changed because of marriage and you need to make a name declaration, or when you are submitting a passport application for your child and you want to register its birth, you have to come to the Embassy at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Please note that these services start at 8.30 am, so please ask for a passport appointment after 09.00 am to allow for time to get these matters taken care of first. Your appointment will be cancelled if you miss your assigned slot by more than 20 minutes.
