Passport and Consular Outreach

Outreach Events

The Australian High Commission and Australian Consulates occasionally visit other cities in Canada to conduct passport interviews as part of an outreach program. The number of visits are limited, only a small number of locations are visited each year and we do not visit each province. We aim to maintain an annual schedule however visits occur only when required for official business purposes.

We aim to provide 1-2 months’ notice of a confirmed outreach program, which we advertise on this web page and through our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
