From 1 January 2016 the following changes will apply:
- Increased passport fees will apply. Please contact the Embassy for the most current fee.
- There will be a discrete application fee for emergency passports. Emergency passports will still be processed within two business days where possible and once all required documentation has been provided.
- From 1 January 2016, child applicants aged 16 or 17 will be issued with a 10-year passport instead of the five-year passport currently issued to children under 18. Applications must still include parental consent, and they must be personally lodged by the applicant together with a parent. The application fee will be the same as for adults, reflecting the longer validity of the passport to be issued. For more information about child passport applications, check the passport website: passports.gov.au.
- Children and persons aged 75 years and over are no longer eligible for frequent traveller passports.
