Latitude Financial Services data breach in Australia – Some Peru passport holders have been impacted

If your foreign passport information was compromised due to a data breach at Latitude Financial Services, they will directly contact you. The organisation is continuing its investigation to determine the full scope of the attack.

However, compromised passports are still valid for international travel; customers whose passports have been affected are advised to contact the government that issued the passport for guidance.

It is also recommended to adhere to regulations regarding the protection of personal information, the prevention of fraud, and the detection of identity theft.

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.


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. 

Some passport applications require the official translation into English of local documents such as birth certificates. Below is a list of official government translators in Peru:
