Replaced or Renewed?

 

Renewed is pretty simple as all you have to do is got to the Australian Embassy with your old passport, a couple passport photos, fill out the form and pay the money. 10 working days later collect your passport from the Embassy.

 

Replace a lost or stolen passport, from memory, you need to have a police report in addition to the above and you may need another Australian that has know you for more than two years to vouch for you to get a new passport. For a temporay passpost I don't think you need someone to vouch for you but you get it within a day.

 

Try the embassy website www.thailand.embassy.gov.au

This is the reason I recoemend you have a couple of photocopies of your passport seperate from your passport.

Years ago. I had my Australian passport stolen in Bangkok. I had stored my British passport separately so that wasn't stolen. I went to the Australian Embassy with the British passport and a police report. They gave me an emergency 12 month passport about a week later. Then I had to go to Thai Immigration to get my visa replaced.

 

These days I have both passports (stored separately) and scans of both passports in hardcopy and on flash drives and on my laptop. I'm thinking of uploading scans to an online database (or email them to myself) as well.

 

I think the point is - be prepared - have some way of identifying yourself to the Embassy if your passport goes missing.
