The Australian Consulate-General in Chicago can assist Australian citizens with reporting lost, stolen or damaged passports, as well as in providing a new Australian Passport while overseas.
Please note all passport applications must be lodged in person, even if you live a long distance from the Consulate-General.
Our staff visit various locations in the Midwest during the year. This may remove the requirement for you to visit Chicago to lodge a passport application. Please see Passport Outreach below to see if our travel coincides with your needs. Upcoming visits include Minneapolis on 9-10 November.
To report your passport as lost, stolen or damaged, please call the Australian Consulate-General in Chicago at +1-312 419 1480 or use the button below. Lost, stolen or damaged passports must be reported before you are able to lodge a new passport application.
Once a passport has been reported as lost, stolen or damaged, it is no longer valid and cannot be used for travel. Even if recovered, you will still need a new passport.
Begin your online passport application, by selecting "Apply or Renew Passport". We strongly recommend you read the "Application Guide" before commencing your application. Please follow all instructions carefully to avoid having to resubmit your application.
If you need a passport for urgent travel, and need to depart the USA within three weeks of lodging your application, please contact the Consulate-General directly on +1 312-419-1480 (option '2' for passports).
You can use the scheduler below to book a passport interview. Each application will require its own appointment (e.g. 3 passport applications by members of the same family = 3 appointments).
Please ensure you have read the Application Guide above before preparing your application.
What to Bring to Interview
For passport renewals you must bring the completed form, your previous passport, two compliant photographs, and means of payment.
For all other passports applications please tick off 'What to Bring to your Passport Appointment' in 'Your Checklist' on your application form.
