Passports and Notarial Services

Passport Services 

Australian passports can be issued overseas for a fee.  Lodge your passport application online. 

Once you have lodged your passport application online, you are required to present at the Australian High Commission, Accra, Ghana, for a passport interview or to provide certain documents. Applicants are also required to print out the completed  application form along with supporting documents for the interview. 

In line with our Consular Sharing Agreement with the Canadians, applicants from our countries of accreditation (Burkina Faso, CDI, Mali and Senegal), may first contact the Canadian Embassy to have their identity verified, and then courier their application to Post, instead of attending the interview at Post.

If you require an emergency travel document, please contact the Australian High Comission, Accra. 

-          Opening hours for passport services – 9:30am to 12:30pm

Notarial service fees to increase from 1 January 2019

The Australian High Commission provides notarial services during normal consular hours.  A full list of the current notarial service fees can be found here.

From 2018 onwards, notarial service fees will increase annually in line with the Consumer Price Index published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

For some services there are free alternatives available to clients, such as witnessing of documents by medical practitioners or police officers.
