We provide passport services to Australians in Japan from our Passport Offices located in Tokyo and Osaka.

Please note: From 1 June 2020, the Australian Embassy Tokyo will accept credit card payments only (Visa/Mastercard/Amex Credit and Debit Cards only) for all notarial services and Australian passport applications.

For in person notarial services and Australia passport applications at the Australian Consulate-General in Osaka, cash will continue to be the only accepted form of payment.

Due to restrictions around responding to COVID-19, there may a delay (of several days to several weeks) in being able to schedule appointments in either Tokyo or Osaka Posts. We appreciate your patience during this time.

When visiting the Embassy in Tokyo or Consulate-General in Osaka for consular, passport or notarial services you must have an appointment and wear a mask. Please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to your appointment in Tokyo and 5 minutes prior to your appointment in Osaka.
