Multi-factor authentication

As part of our commitment to protect your personal information, we've introduced multi-factor authentication on all AusPassport accounts. 

You’ll need to add this extra layer of security to your account next time you visit AusPassport.

Each time you sign in, you’ll enter your password and a unique code we send to your mobile number or email address to confirm it’s you.

We’ve also updated our terms and conditions and privacy policy to reflect the introduction of multi-factor authentication. 

You can find more information on our multi-factor authentication page.

Check for passport damage

Some countries won’t let you enter if your passport shows any signs of damage. This means a small rip, mark or water stain can ruin your overseas holiday. 

Don’t let this happen to you! Check your passport for signs of damage before you travel.
Find out about damaged passports and how to replace one on our website.

Indigenous art and our passport

This Reconciliation Week we’d like to shine a spotlight on the Indigenous artwork in our passport’s design.

Indigenous art has featured in Australia’s passport since 2009. 

Our latest passport features elements from two renowned Aboriginal artworks. 

The watermark security feature is based on Uta Uta Tjangala’s painting, Yumari (1981). 

Motifs from Michael Nelson Jagamara’s painting, Possum and Wallaby Dreaming (1985), appear throughout the passport.

You can find out more about the Indigenous artworks in Australia’s passport on our website.
