How to lodge your passport application

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 contact us on +977 1 4371 678 for further advice or to make an appointment to lodge your application.

Please note that child applications should be lodged in person by a parent or person with parental responsibility for the child. The parent or person lodging the application is not required to be an Australian citizen, but will need to bring photographic proof of their own identity to the appointment.

Passport applicants should expect a minimum of 15 working days from the date of lodging their application before the new passport will be ready for collection from the Embassy.  Please ensure you factor this timeframe into your travel plans.  Limited validity emergency passports can be issued within 48 hours in the case of a lost or stolen passport, or where another genuine need to travel urgently arises.

Passport application fees can be paid in the following methods:

- in cash in Nepalese rupees (NPR) only,

- by Visa or MasterCard in AUD using an Australian (or other international) bank issued credit card. Due to restrictions Nepalese bank issued credit cards cannot be accepted.
