Australian passport application for Australians visiting or residing in Tunisia
How to apply
Whether you are renewing your passport or applying for the first time, you will need to complete an application form and submit it in person at our office in Malta together with the required documents.

If you are not in Malta at this time, the passport can be sent by courier from Malta to the Canadian Embassy in Tunis where you will be able to collect it in person. It takes between 3 to 6 days for the passport to be delivered.
Alternatively, you may want to lodge your application at another Australian Embassy abroad. Kindly contact them to check their procedure.
