Passport Services
Apply for or renew a U.S. Passport

Please follow the instructions outlined below when preparing to apply for a U.S. passport in Australia.

Do not follow the instructions pre-printed on the passport forms. As these are designed for applicants within the United States, information such as accepted forms of payment and where to submit the application are not applicable. The forms incorrectly state that Passport Services will not mail a passport to a private address outside the United States. Applicants may write an Australian mailing address on the forms (write over the boxes where there is insufficient space), and are required to provide an Express Post envelope for the return of their new passports. Passports submitted to support an application for a new passport will be canceled and returned with the applicant’s new passport.
