How to lodge your passport application
As of 1 July 2015, all Australian citizens must lodge their passport application in person. We are not able to accept applications by mail or courier. This helps us to protect you, by protecting the security and integrity of your Australian passport. For further advice, please contact us via the details listed above.
Please note that child applications should be lodged in person by a parent or person with parental responsibility for the child. The parent or person lodging the application is not required to be an Australian citizen, but will need to bring photographic proof of their own identity to the appointment.
As of 1 January 2016, a child who is 16 or 17 years old at the time of lodgement will be issued a 10 year validity passport. While a parent or person with parental responsibility will still be required to lodge the application, the 16 or 17 year old applicant will also be required to present in person. The application fee will be the same as for an adult passport.
Passport Fees as of 1 January 2017
- 10-year passport for persons aged 18 and over AUD 380
- 10-year passport for children aged 16 and 17 AUD 329
- 5-year passport for children under 16 years AUD 191
