Netherlands Consulate in Port Moresby

Mr Stan Joyce  Honorary Consul

Opening Times

Opening hours

In case of a consular emergency an honorary consul can assist you under certain circumstances. This may be applicable in case of a lost or stolen passport or in case of a serious accident, hospitalisation, death, disappearances, disasters or other calamities. In case of such an emergency you can reach the honorary consuls in Australia 24/7 by phone on 02 93876644 / +61293876644.

Lost or stolen passport:

If your passport is lost or stolen, you can request a ‘laissez-passer’ by phone on 02 93876644 / +61293876644.

Your request for a laissez-passer will be processed immediately. The honorary consul will contact you and, in case you are eligible, provide you with a laissez-passer. The release of a laissez-passer takes 1 to 2 days. Please check with your airline whether you are allowed to board with a Dutch laissez-passer.

It is also possible to request a new passport at the Consulate-General in Sydney via an emergency procedure. This takes 8 to 10 days and you have to do the request in person. Your new passport will be valid for 10 years.

Consular emergency:

The honorary consul may be asked for support in case of consular emergencies. Each case is individually assessed in consultation with the Consulate-General in Sydney. You can reach the honorary consul by phone on 02 93876644 / +61293876644.

Remaining civil affairs:

Since the honorary consuls merely provide ‘laissez-passers’, you can contact the Embassy in Canberra or the Consulate-General in Sydney for any remaining civil affairs services  from the 1st of May 2017 onwards. However, often a ‘justice of the peace’ or ‘notary public’ in your area may provide the requested service.
