Changes to Australian passports processing
As of 1 January 2016:
- lost and stolen passport fees have been abolished.
- there is an application fee for emergency passports (this replaced the previous processing fee). Emergency passports are still processed within two business days where possible and once all required documentation has been provided.
- 16- and 17-year-old applicants are now issued with ten-year validity passports. Persons of this age must be accompanied by a person with parental responsibility when lodging their passport application.
