Lost Passport - Dual Citizen

My son is a dual citizen Australia/Indonesian. He is currently studying in Australia. He managed to misplace his australian passport and reported it lost to the relevant authorities. They cancelled it. He was in the middle of exams so didn't take any other action. Now his exams are over and he is trying to apply for a new passport. As the lost one was cancelled they will not accept it as a form of id so he now needs original documents from me that are not in Australia. It will be easier if he comes to Indoneaia and applies here.

My question is this; he flew into Australia on his Australian passport. This is no longer valid. Can he fly out of Australia on his Indonesian passport even if it has no entry stamp and no Australian visa in it?

Many thanks.

From Home Affairs website -
Australian citizens entering and leaving Australia
Australian citizens should use their Australian passport to enter and leave Australia.

The Australian Border Force has more information on crossing the border.

If you have a passport from another country, you can use that after you leave Australia.

A passport is the best way to show that you are an Australian citizen. You might still be able to enter Australia if you are an Australian citizen without an Australian passport, but it will be more difficult. The airline might also stop you from boarding a plane to Australia.

Smart Traveller has more information about travelling as a dual citizen.


Dual citizens of other countries entering and leaving Australia
If you are a citizen of 2 or more countries other than Australia, you must use the passport you used when applying for your visa for both entering and leaving Australia. If you present a different passport, you may be refused boarding on flights to Australia by your airline, or experience significant difficulties travelling to Australia.

He should be able to fly out on a foreign passport.

The issue would be getting back in. He would not be able to return on it.

He would need to get the new Australian passport to come back.

Check to see you can supply the documents to the Australian Embassy in Indonesia and then they send through the documents to the passport office in the city he lives in.

I had my passport stolen when I was overseas and I didn't have a copy of my birth certificate to apply for a new standard passport. My parents took my birth certificate to the passport office in Brisbane and then they sent it (I assume via email or fax) to the Australian Embassy in Cairo which then allowed me to get a new standard passport.

An Australian birth certificate does not establish that a person is an Australian citizen.
