IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR AUSTRALIANS WISHING TO APPLY FOR PASSPORTS:
The Australian Passport Office (APO) is currently seeing strong demand for passports. For this reason, it is advising its customers to apply for or renew their passport well ahead of their planned travel dates. The APO is therefore recommending, at least for now, that they allow up to six weeks to get a new passport.
