Collection/Dispatch of Australian Travel Documents
Please note that the Australian Embassy in Belgrade can no longer post Australian travel documents to clients by registered mail using the local mail service.
All Australian passports applicants will have the option to either collect the passport from the Australian Embassy in Belgrade directly or make arrangement for a courier service ie. DHL, Fedex or other to have the passport collected from the Embassy and delivered to their home address. Please note that cost of the courier service is to be met by the applicant.
These arrangements have been introduced to ensure that Australian passports are delivered/ dispatched by most secure means.
