From 1 July 2015 ALL PASSPORT APPLICATION FORMS MUST BE LODGED IN PERSON. It will no longer be possible for applications to be accepted by mail. (One parent will still be able to apply on behalf of children under 18 years of age).

Maintaining the greatest security and integrity in the Australian passport system is our primary consideration.

It is therefore necessary to confirm the identity of the passport applicant and this is intrinsic to the integrity of the Australian passport.

This policy will also apply for applications lodged in Australia.


From 1 July 2015 an additional fee will apply for ALL passports applications lodged overseas.

For details open "Services for Australians" on the menu on the left side of this page.


Work and holiday visa arrangement signed with Israel

On 22 October 2014, Australia and Israel announced that a reciprocal work and holiday (subclass 462) visa arrangement between our two countries had been signed.

This arrangement, when brought into effect, will enable up to 500 young Israelis who completed their military service or are exempt from military service to enjoy an extended holiday in Australia each year. Under the new arrangement, holders of a work and holiday visa will be entitled to visit Australia for up to one year, and will also be eligible to engage in short-term work or study during their stay.

This arrangement will help Australians and Israelis continue to enhance their already close ties, and reflects the strong bond of friendship our nations share.

In the coming months, Australia and Israel will be working closely together to implement the necessary legal and administrative processes to bring this visa arrangement into effect.

When the arrangement has commenced, eligible Israelis will be able to apply for the visa.
