The following consular services will NOT be available at the consular camp:

Issuance of new passport. Such cases must be sent to the High Commission in Canberra fulfilling all the requirements and enclosing a self-addressed registered return envelope. However, if the applicants can visit the camp in person and submit all required documents with return postage, the applications for new passport would be received by the team and would be processed in Canberra and would be delivered to the applicants, which would take about 7 working days. The normal fee of A$ 195.00 would be charged for each applicant for the passport only and the fee should be paid in Bank draft only.

All payments must be paid in the mode of Bank Draft/Cheque in favour of “Bangladesh High Commission, Canberra” as we DO NOT accept cash, credit card, eftpos or personal cheque. All consular service seekers are requested to kindly have their money order or bank cheque prepared during week days as most post offices and banks are closed on weekends. Fee for consular services of multiple applicants (e.g. members of a family) of different natures (e.g. application for ‘No Visa Required…’ seal and Renewal of Passport by separate applicants) must be paid in different cheque / money order but of similar nature may be combined in one cheque / money order. The High Commission would like to Repeat that cash will NOT be accepted under any circumstances.

The High Commission would like to request all concerned, who intend to get their consular works done at the consular camp, to have all their queries cleared by visiting the website of the High Commission or calling the High Commission at Canberra (02-6290 0511, 6290 0522, 6290 0533) on week days.
