Can I collect my passport or have someone else collect it on my behalf from the Consulate?
You can collect your passport from the Consulate during the public office opening hours. Please note that you wish to collect your passport in person when you are submitting your application. When your passport has been delivered to the Consulate, a passport officer will call you at the number you have provided on your form and will leave a message if you cannot take the call. Please note that due to the volume of passports processed by the Consulate, it is not possible for a passport office to call more than once. You will be required to present ID upon the collection of your passport.
It is not possible to collect a passport outside of the public office opening hours (10am - 1pm; Monday to Friday).
If you cannot collect your passport in person, it is possible to arrange for a friend or relative to collect it on your behalf. You will need to confirm the details of the person nominated to collect the passport in writing to the Consulate and they will be asked to present ID in order to collect the passport.
