Current passport delivery times

The Australian Passport Office (APO) is currently seeing strong demand for passports. For this reason, it is advising its customers to apply for or renew their passport well ahead of their planned travel dates. The APO is therefore recommending, at least for now, that they allow up to six weeks to get a new passport.
Passports are printed in Australia so we are unable to offer a priority service in Malaysia.

Applying by post – Australian Passport Renewal Form (PC7 Adult renewals only)

Eligible clients may now apply to renew their adult passport by post. For further information, please click here.

From 1 July 2018 no glasses in new passport photo

Glasses will not be allowed in new passport photos taken from 1 July 2018.

This will further strengthen the integrity of the Australian passport.

Research has shown that glasses adversely affect passport facial matching. Matching is more accurate without glasses.

A limited exemption for medical reasons may apply where supported by a medical certificate.
