We continue to provide passport and notarial services by appointment only and provide consular services to those in genuine need. Our ability to provide some services may be limited.

Registering with DFAT

If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident travelling or living in Bolivia or Peru, and you’ve been trying to return to Australia but haven’t been able to, consider registering your details with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). Please provide as much information about your situation as you can, including any barriers you have been experiencing in your attempts to return to Australia.

Registering with DFAT allows us to better understand who's trying to return home and helps us with our planning. DFAT will use the information you provide in your registration to assess your situation. We'll contact you if we need more information or have information regarding potential flights that may become available.
