Approval for a concurrent passport is generally limited to cases where significant travel delays could be caused by waiting for visa(s) to be issued or when a destination country will not accept a passport showing evidence of travel to a third country.
In order to consider an application for a concurrent passport we would require the standard application form, as well as a completed Form B-15 Application for a Concurrent passport (to be submitted under cover of a letter from employer). The Form B-15 is available at this link - Concurrent passports | Australian Passport Office.
Concurrent passports are issued for a maximum of three years and cost the same as a standard ten-year passport. Applications are subject to approval and if we decide that you don’t qualify for a concurrent passport, your application fee is generally not refundable. Fees are non-refundable.
