The Australian Embassy in Moscow can assist you with applying for a new Australian passport, renew an expired passport or replace a passport that was lost or stolen.
Australians abroad, especially in Russia and in our countries of accreditations must ensure their passports are valid throughout their entire stay.
When renewing or replacing an Australian passport in Russia, pay particular attention to regulations regarding Russian visas. A Russian visa is only valid for the passport in which it was issued in. If the passport is cancelled, lost or is no longer valid, the visa also loses its validity. It is the responsibility of the passport holder to obtain a replacement visa for the new passport.
Whether you apply in Australia or overseas, it takes approximately three weeks to get a new passport. You can help minimise processing times by ensuring that when you lodge your application, you provide all the required and correct information.
