Adult Passport Renewal check list

The size and quality of your passport photograph is of critical importance. The size of your head in the photograph must comply with Australian passport requirements, which differ from United Kingdom passport photograph standards. Familiarise yourself with these requirements and ensure you submit compliant photos. Your application may be rejected because of unusable photographs. Do not use UK Photo Booths as they are not set to Australian Standards.

Passport Fees and Payment 

Applicants are encouraged to complete the Australian Passport Renewal Application online at or  you can have the partially completed form posted to you by phoning the Passport Office between 0900 and 1200 hours (Monday to Friday) on 020 7887 5816. As you may experience delays in getting through to the operator, you are strongly advised to see if your question can be answered in our FAQs section.




Please note that your previous Australian passport will be cancelled and returned to you. You should check the status of any visas in your cancelled passport with the authority which issued them, i.e. the relevant embassy or the Home Office for UK visas as we cannot transfer visas into new passports.
