Services for Australians overseas

Passport services

Information on how to apply for an Australian passport is available on our Australian passports page. The page contains up to date information on the passport process, including on-line passport application forms, list of supporting documents required, current fees and payment details.

Lost or stolen passports

If your passport has been lost or stolen, you are required by law to report the loss or theft. This should be done as soon as practicable to your nearest Australian Embassy or Consulate or via our on-line service. Report your passport lost or stolen online. Passports reported as lost or stolen will be immediately and permanently cancelled. A cancelled passport must not be used for travel.

Consular services

The Australian Embassy in Tallinn does not provide consular services.

Australia has a Consulate in Tallinn, headed by an Honorary Consul, which provides limited consular assistance (not including visa and immigration services, the issue of passports or notarial services).

The Australian Embassy in Stockholm provides full consular assistance for Australians in Estonia.

There are legal limits on to what the Australian Embassy can do to assist Australians overseas. Please see "What we can and cannot do" for further advice.

If you require consular services, please contact the Australian Consulate on +372 6 509 308 or the Australian Embassy in Stockholm on +46 8 613 2900 during business hours.  24-hour emergency assistance for Australian citizens is available from the Consular Emergency Centre in Canberra on +61 2 6261 3305.
