Travelling overseas during the summer holidays? Check the validity on your passport – remember most countries require at least six months validity from the date you leave that country. If you need a new passport before Christmas/New Year, we recommend that you apply as soon as possible. Allow at least three weeks to receive your new passport. Public holidays may extend the time taken to get your passport so please plan ahead to avoid delays. If you need a passport in a hurry ask about our priority service.
