Australia is committed to working with the countries of southern Africa as a friend and partner, not only to address some of the continent's development challenges, but also to help those countries reach their full potential. Australia is an innovative and dynamic country with a strong economy, a diverse and multicultural society, a wealth of natural wonders and a commitment to forging positive partnership with countries around the globe. Registering with the High Commission is beneficial and easy. The registration information provided by the applicant will help the High Commission to find him/her in an emergency. It may also be used to pass other information to you such as new Travel Advisories, notice of elections, and important information relevant to travellers and expatriates.

The Consular Section provides consular assistance to Australian citizens and permanent residents travelling or living abroad through our offices in Australia and diplomatic missions (embassies, high commissions, consulates) overseas. The capacity to assist one is influenced by local laws and conditions, international rules governing consular work, and by the cooperation offered by persons and organisations outside the Australian Government.

The role includes:

  • providing one with prompt, effective and courteous consular service
  • ensuring the High Commission has trained and dedicated staff to assist
  • advising you of the services provided and not provided and the fees and charges that apply
  • protecting one's privacy in accordance with Australian law
  • maintaining collaborative working relations with other government and non-government agencies to facilitate effective consular and crisis-related assistance.

Applying for a passport:
Please note that there is no priority processing service offered at the Pretoria Passport Office. 

The applicant will need an appointment to lodge your Australian passport application in Pretoria. Applications may be lodged between 9.00 -12.30 Monday to Friday. Passport applications by post/courier to the High Commission will no longer be encouraged due to upcoming proposed passport policy changes. Should one wish to submit the passport application by post/courier, please contact the High Commission to allow a passport officer to assess the eligibility to do so.

In the event of a lost or stolen passport one should:

  • Report the loss of your passport immediately to the Australian High Commission in Pretoria.
  • Obtain an official police report from the local police station
  • Complete and submit an Australian Passport Application PC8 form.

PLEASE NOTE: Those applicants wishing to lodge an application to replace a lost or stolen passport will be required to pay an additional fee. There are no exceptions. Fees may be paid by credit card, cash or electronic transfer.

Australian citizens are highly encouraged to register with the High Commission. The registration information you provide will help the High Commission to contact or find you in an emergency - whether it is a natural disaster, civil disturbance or family emergency.
