DFAT offices closure on 27 April 2015

Within Australia the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade will observe an Anzac Day holiday on Monday 27 April 2015. As a result, no documents can be lodged through Australian DFAT offices for legalisation (authentication or apostille). Passports offices will also be closed on Monday 27 April 2015. However, the Australian Passport Information Service will operate as normal: call 131 232 for advice or assistance on passport matters. Except in Western Australia, Australia Post outlets that act as passport agencies may be open and able to accept passport applications.
