Consulate General of Canada in Sydney

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

Due to ongoing concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, preventative measures have been enacted throughout our global network of offices. Consular services remain available to Canadians. Many Government of Canada offices are encouraging clients to limit in-person visits. Canadians in need of assistance should contact the Government of Canada office nearest them by phone or e-mail before visiting in person. You can also contact the Emergency Watch and Response Centre.

For information on COVID-19, please visit the Government of Canada's official outbreak page and check our Travel Advice and Advisories. Make sure to register with the Registration of Canadians Abroad to get the latest updates at your destination.

Consular Services for Canadians

We continue to provide full consular services to Canadian citizens. In-person services however are currently available only for urgent requirements by appointment only, in keeping with the recommendations of Australian and Canadian public health authorities on social distancing and limiting public outings.

Any non-urgent applications for passports or proof of citizenship certificates will be accepted by mail only. New passports will be distributed by registered mail, unless in-person collection is required due to urgent travel.

Notarial services are not available until further notice.

If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms on the day of your appointment, please contact us to reschedule as you will not be permitted to enter the Consulate General.

These temporary measures are in place to limit the exposure of clients, and to allow urgent assistance to Canadians related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please refer to the Passport or Citizenship websites for more information.
