Dutch and Australian nationality?                                                                          If you are not in a position to visit the Netherlands Consulate-General in Sydney to renew your passport, you can apply for a Dutch Nationality Certificate. This might be especially interesting for people who also have Australian nationality and want to maintain their Dutch nationality. A Dutch Nationality Certificate is not a travel document and can’t be used as such.  Please be aware that if you hold Australian nationality you have to travel out and back into Australia on your Australian passport. The Dutch Nationality Certificate is valid for 10 years. You can apply for such a Certificate by sending the following documents to the Netherlands Consulate-General (P.O. Box 261, Bondi Junction NSW 1355):

Legalised copy of your Dutch passport;
- Proof of legal residence in Australia, e.g. recent letter of the Australian Immigration Department or a legalised copy of your Australian passport;
- A copy of an official document containing your name and address, e.g. electricity bill, bank statement; and
- Payment of 46AUD (subject to exchange rates) by providing us with a credit card authorisation form.
If you are a minor or if this is the first application after becoming an Australian citizen, further documents are needed.

Please check your passport

Currently, our consular staff in Sydney are                    experiencing an enormous amount of phone calls and emails from people realise that their passport is about to expire and they can’t travel on it anymore.
Please be aware that if you are travelling through or via most Asian countries your passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months after leaving the country. A lot of Asian countries (as well as New Zealand) do not accept handwritten emergency passports so the only solution is to apply for a new passport using the emergency fast track option. It will then take about 10 working days to issue a passport (not including the time needed by Australia Post to get the passport to you).
Therefore please check your passport and book an appointment to avoid disappointment.
