If you want to renew your Australian passport, you can download the form online and then lodge your application at an Australia Post outlet.

To get started, visit the Australian Passport Office.


You can begin the renewal process online if you’re 18 years of age or older and your most recent Australian passport:

  • was issued when you were 16 or older
  • was issued on or after 1 January 2006
  • was valid for at least 2 years when issued
  • has your current name, date of birth, place of birth and gender
  • has not been reported lost, stolen or cancelled. 

If you do not meet the criteria for renewal, you’ll need to complete a new passport application.

What you need

  • the completed renewal application form
  • 2 identical photos of yourself that are no more than 6 months old
  • all supporting documents requested on the application form.

How to renew

  1. Select the 'Renew online' button.
  2. Create an AusPassport account.
  3. Complete, print and sign your application form.
  4. Have your passport photos taken.
  5. Find a participating Post Office and make an appointment (if required).
  6. Pay the application fee.

Note: Passport renewal forms are not available from Australia Post. If you’re unable to renew online, call 131 232 to get a pre-filled form sent to you.
