If you’re thinking of travelling overseas during the summer break, plan ahead.
Like many countries, Australia is experiencing unprecedented demand for passports.
If you need a new passport, you should lodge your application now. Where possible, don’t book flights without a valid passport.
If you can’t wait at least six weeks for your passport, you can use our priority passport processing service.
If you’ve already booked your trip and need a passport, please call 131 232 to let us know your travel dates.
