Emergency consular assistance

24 hour emergency consular assistance: + 61 2 6261 3305

We assist Australians overseas within limits (see Consular Services Charter). Our capacity to assist is influenced by local laws and conditions, international rules governing consular work, and by the cooperation offered by persons and organisations. This does not diminish the obligation of Australian citizens to keep themselves informed on the situation in the country likely to affect their safety or to meet costs incurred in rendering assistance.

Appointment bookings for passport and notarial services in Lima

The Australian Passport Office (APO) is currently seeing strong demand for passports. For this reason, it is advising its customers to apply for or renew their passport well ahead of their planned travel dates. The APO is therefore recommending, at least for now, that they allow up to six weeks to get a new passport.


Adult passport renewal applications can now be received by mail.  For an Adult passport renewal application to be received this way, you must be 18 years and over and you will need an existing passport that:

  • Was issued when you were 16 years or older;
  • Was issued on or after 1 January 2006;
  • Had, when it was issued, at least two years’ validity;
  • Has your current name, date of birth and gender, and
  • Has not been reported lost, stolen, or cancelled.


If you can answer yes to all of the above, please email [email protected] for instructions on how to proceed.  If you don’t meet the above criteria, you’ll need to lodge your application in person at the embassy.

In-person Passport and notarial services are available by appointment only at the Australian Embassy in Lima.  Clients without an appointment will only be seen in exceptional circumstances. 

For the safety of our staff and other visitors, all clients will be required to wear a mask, have their temperature taken and sanitize their hands prior to entering the Embassy. A limited number of people will be allowed to enter, so we ask that you do not bring anyone to your appointment who is not required to attend. If you are feeling unwell, have had recent exposure to someone who is ill or exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, you must reschedule your appointment.
