The ‘Overseas Application Fee’ for adult (including seniors over 75) applications will be AUD100 and for child (under 18) applications will be AUD50. This fee is in addition to the ‘Application Fee’ of AUD250 for adult applications and AUD125 for seniors and child applications.

As the ‘Overseas Application Fee’ does not apply to passport applications lodged in person in Australia, you may consider renewing your passport when you are next in Australia, to avoid the ‘Overseas Application Fee’.

The new fee will help to maintain the greatest security and integrity in the Australian passport system, which is one of the world’s most secure passports systems.

While unrelated to the surcharge, 1 July 2015 is also the date that all passport applications must be lodged in person at an Australian Diplomatic Mission overseas or at an Australian Passports office in Australia.
