New policy on passport photos

The Australian Passport Office no longer allows glasses in passport photos taken from 1 July 2018.  Glasses may be allowed in rare circumstances where glasses cannot be removed for medical reasons (e.g. the applicant has severe light sensitivity or recently had eye surgery and glasses are necessary to protect their eyes).  In these cases, a medical certificate is required to be presented at lodgement of the passport application.  The medical certificate must be signed by a medical practitioner and state the medical reason glasses cannot be removed.


Passport collections - 

Collection of passports will be unavailable on Friday 26 April between 11:30 and 14:30.  If you have chosen to collect your passport, please do so on an alternative day.


Applications for Australian passports must be lodged in person. Children under 16 years do not need to attend interviews. You will need to make an appointment. We will only see you in exceptional circumstances without an appointment.
