Passport applications lodged overseas incur an additional overseas application fee (overseas surcharge). This fee is included in the total fee on our Fee Table for each passport type. To see the exact price of the overseas surcharge, visit the fee page at passports.gov.au. This fee does not apply to replacement passport and emergency passport applications.
Fees apply for consular services and are payable under the Consular Fees Act. Certified copy fees are charged per document e.g. if you require two copies of your passport and two copies of your Hong Kong ID you will be charged 4 certified copy fees. Witnessing fees are charged per person per document e.g. if you require two people to sign two copies of a document you will be charged 4 witnessing fees.
Property/mortgage documents: Fees for completing property/mortgage documents at the Consulate can be over HKD5,000. We charge a witnessing fee per document per person and a certified copy fee per document per copy. For example, a couple who is purchasing a property and requires two copies of a mortgage document plus two certified documents each (e.g. a passport and a Hong Kong ID) will be charged 4 x witnessing + 4 x certifying = 8 charges. This would be HKD 3,000-4,000 depending on the monthly exchange rate. You might want to first contact a notary public to see if they can witness your documents for a lower fee. The Consulate’s current fees are available here. There is no charge for the DFAT Identity Certificate.
Fees are set in Australian dollars, and converted into Hong Kong dollars. The exchange rate is reviewed monthly.
We are only able to accept payment in Hong Kong Dollars. Payment at our office can be made by EPS, credit card (Visa and MasterCard) and AliPay. We do not accept cash, American Express or cheques.
