New ‘Fast Track’ processing service

15 May 2024

As announced in the Federal Budget last night (14 May), eligible Australian-based customers will have access to a new expedited passport service called ‘Fast Track (5-day processing)’ from 1 July 2024. 

The service will guarantee your passport application is processed within 5 business days of a complete passport application being received by us. It will cost an extra $100 on top of the regular passport application fee.  

This service will be offered alongside our existing ‘Priority (2-day processing)’ service, which guarantees passport processing within 2 business days.  

People should continue to allow at least 6 weeks to get their passport. If you need a passport quicker, you will have more options for expedited service from 1 July 2024.
