Introduction

If you live overseas and want to renew your Australian passport, you can begin the 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 valid for at least 2 years when issued
  • is still current or expired less than 3 years ago. 

If your personal details such as name and/or sex have changed, you'll need to complete a new passport application.
