How to apply for or renew your French passport

Are you planning to go to France ? Here is the procedure to obtain a French passport / renew your old one.

If you wish to book an appointment here at the Honorary Consulate General of France in Melbourne to apply for a French passport or to renew one, you must go to the ”passport application appointment” tab accessible here. Make sure to book an appointment for each passport applicant.

Depending on your situation, you will find the list of documents to bring with you to the appointment here. Please note, passport applications for minors require the presence of both parents during the appointment. If one parent cannot attend, prior to the appointment he/she must have signed the bottom part of the passport application form in front of a Justice of the Peace. A photocopy of his/ her ID will be required in the application file. 

Please make sure that your photography is compliant with the OACI standards, the background has to be slightly coloured (pale grey, pale blue) but not white.
