Note that the British Embassy in Australia and their Consulate across Australia have divided certain tasks amongst themselves and others in the region to make the system more efficient.
– UK passport and inquiries are handled by the Regional Passport Centre in Wellington, New Zealand.
– Visa applications and inquiries are dealt with by the Visa Section at the British Consulate in Canberra.
Consulates-General and Consulates in Australia do not handle these matters, although passport (but not visa) application forms are available at their offices. This then gets forwarded to the British regional office in New Zealand for processing. See also:
