Planning to travel over the summer holidays?

16 September 2022

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.
