IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR AUSTRALIANS WISHING TO APPLY FOR PASSPORTS:
The Australian Passport Office (APO) is currently seeing strong demand for passports. For this reason, it is advising its customers to apply for or renew their passport well ahead of their planned travel dates. The APO is therefore recommending, at least for now, that they allow up to six weeks to get a new passport.
Click on the "Australians" tab above for passports information and forms.
Welcome to the website of the Australian Embassy in Tel Aviv. I'm delighted to be here in Israel and look forward to advancing the dynamic bilateral relationship and especially working with the Australian-Israeli community.
This site contains a broad range of information on the Embassy's services.
The information and links on this site are aimed at answering the most commonly asked questions about Australia. The site covers services for Australian citizens, as well as information on immigration and visas.
The site also contains links to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Australian Government websites. These links are designed to assist those looking for information on COVID-19, Trade, Cultural, Aid or other Government services.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, it's an exciting time in the bilateral relationship with growing commercial and innovation linkages, and strong people-to-people links. I look forward to working with you.

The Australian Passport Office has introduced a new portal for clients to complete their passport applications online. This will require clients to first register for an account before completing their passport application.
If clients face any issues when completing the passport application or during the account registration process, they should contact the Embassy.
