Embassy Operations Update (as at 20 January 2021)

The Embassy of Australia in Riyadh continues to provide in-person appointments for notarials and passport applications. We will prioritise requests that cannot be handled by mail.

To make an appointment, please email [email protected]

Requests for notarial services that can be handled by mail should be done so rather than in person.

Only people required to attend an appointment will be admitted. Children under 16 are not required to attend passport interviews and will not be admitted to the Embassy.
