Travel information for Australians
Passport interviews are conducted at the Australian High Commission in Singapore between 8:30am and 4:00pm, Monday to Friday, excluding some Singapore and Australian Public Holidays. This is a walk-up service only - no appointments are taken.
We aim to issue passports within three weeks of receipt of a complete application, namely an application form completed correctly with all the required supporting documents, including photographs which meet the guidelines. Please visit the Australian Passport Office website for more information at the following address: www.passports.gov.au
Australians adopting in Singapore
Australians considering adopting a non-Singapore citizen child whilst living in Singapore are highly advised to discuss their plans with the Principal Migration Officer at the High Commission before committing to any adoption (arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org ). Australian migration requirements in respect of adopted children are quite specific, and an adoption that does not meet these legal criteria may result in the child not being able to migrate to Australia nor acquire Australian citizenship. To meet migration visa requirements, amongst other criteria, Australians would be expected to have adopted a non-Singapore citizen child through the formal and legal adoption process in the child’s home country – a Singapore court adoption order for a non-Singapore citizen child is unlikely to meet Australia’s migration requirements.
