If you’re applying for a new passport in 2023, you’re likely to get Australia’s innovative new passport, known as the ‘R Series’.
As Australia’s next-generation passport, the R Series is packed with advanced security features designed to keep Australians’ identities safe.
The photo page is made of tough, high-security, layered plastic, known as polycarbonate.
Polycarbonate is laser-engraved, not printed with ink. Photos on the photo page appear in black and white rather than in colour.
But the R Series is not only jam-packed with high-tech innovations. It’s also visually stunning.
The visa pages proudly showcase 17 iconic landscapes from around our beautiful country. Under ultraviolet light, the sky in each image becomes a unique nightscape, and a local species of native fauna appears.
You can read more about the R Series here.

Remember, please allow at least six weeks to get your new passport.
