How to Renew Australian Passport Online?

There are two ways of renewing (and applying) your Australian Passport, either online or by what is called the streamlined process which is done via Australian post. This article gives information about what to do to renew your Australian passport online.

How to Renew Australian Passport Online 

It’s easy. Just go to our online application and follow the prompts.

You’ll get a personalised application checklist or a completed application form. You’ll need to download it online, print it out and lodge it. 

Include your two passport photos and any original documents that the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DfAT) requires. 

Alternatively, if you are in the country, send the completed application through the Australia Post outlet or lodge it with an Australian diplomatic or consular mission where you are.

Find out how to track the Australian Passport Application using the registered post tracking number.

What if I don’t want to go online?

If going online isn’t an option for you, just ask for a blank application form at a participating Australia Post outlet or an Australian diplomatic or consular mission.

For streamlined renewal without going online, you’ll have to call us on 131 232 or contact an Australian diplomatic or consular mission. DFAT will confirm that you qualify, and send you a pre-filled form by mail or by email.

Can I get a passport renewal form at Australia Post?

Yes, but not for streamlined renewal.

The form to ask for is called ‘Application for an Australian Passport’. 

  • For adults, the form is green.
  •  For children, the form is purple.

As well as two passport photographs, you’ll need your birth certificate and other original documents to establish your identity and citizenship. You’ll also need a guarantor.

How do I get a form for streamlined renewal?

The easiest way to take advantage of streamlined renewal is by using our online service.

If that’s not an option for you, you can call us on 131 232 if you’re in Australia or contact an Australian diplomatic or consular mission if you’re overseas.

Calling outside peak periods (9am to 3pm) may reduce your wait time.
