Consulate General of Canada in Sydney

Important Notice

The passport program has experienced an unprecedented influx of applications as a result of the new requirement for dual citizens to travel to Canada using their Canadian passports. 

At present, passport applications are taking an average of 30 business days. We appreciate the patience of all those who have had to wait longer than usual to get their passport back. We are working diligently to get through the backlog.

Due to the high volume of passport applications that are being submitted, we are unable to provide specific updates to cases unless it is past our current processing time of 30 working days.

The expedited service for an additional cost is not available outside of Canada.
