I’m in the UK, my passport has been stolen and it has my valid Irish WHA in it: what do I do?

Contact the Irish Embassy Visa Office and explain the situation. We will contact our colleagues in Canberra and see if a new WHA can be issued.

In the event that we can issue a new WHA, you will have to provide us with your new permanent Australian passport (we cannot accept temporary ones) and the police report that confirms the theft of your passport.
