How to apply for a new hungarian passport
From 01/01/2012 you can apply for a new passport with biometric data at the Hungarian Embassy in Canberra. Therefore it's no longer possible to ask for a one year validity provisonal passport.
All passport applications must be handed personally at the Consular Section of the Embassy. Prior appointment by phone or e-mail ( (02) 6282 3226, email@example.com) is necessary. Photograph, fingerprints and signature are electronically taken on the spot from each applicant aged more than 12 years old. No other photo or previously completed form is necessary.
Applications for minors (under 12 years old) can be submitted at the honorary consul’s office (2 passport photos, Hungarian birth certificate, parents’ marriage certificate, application form available from Honorary Consul).
The applicant must be a Hungarian citizen. Hungarian citizenship can be verified with a valid Hungarian passport, ID card, or Certificate of Citizenship.
If the applicant cannot present any of the above mentioned documents and no active record can be found of him/her in the Registry of Hungarian Citizen's Basic Data and Address, it is necessary to examine the existence of the applicant's Hungarian citizenship. You will find information about this process at magyar állampolgárság fennállásának vizsgálata (in Hungarian).
Any change in the civil status of the applicant (e.g. marriage, divorce) is to be registered in Hungary paralelly with the passport application (see: hazai anyakönyvezés) (in Hungarian)!
If the applied for passport replaces a lost, perished, or damaged travel document, the procedure fee is double.
No urgency requests are possible on applications submitted at the Consulate outside Hungary.
