Australian Passport Renewal Application (PC7)

PC7 Australian Passport Renewal Application form can be lodged by mail.  Please refer to the PC7 mail instructions for how to prepare your application kit. 

Notice:  PC7 renewal application forms are currently displaying an expiration date of 3 years after your passport expiration, due to a technical issue.  You may still apply using these forms if you meet all other criteria for a PC7 renewal application. You can check the criteria here. 

If you choose to apply in person instead of by mail

You must bring the following items to your passport interview:

  • Your most recent passport.
  • Your completed application form. 
  • Visa or MasterCard for payment.  (Some offices also accept other payment cards.)
  • 2 compliant passport photos, less than six months old.  (We will attach the photos for you.)

Use this checklist to prepare for your interview

  • Make sure the application form is not cut off at the top or bottom of the page. For example, on the application page, a 71G barcode at the top and admin section at the bottom should be visible.  (The 72G barcode page is the instruction page.)
  • Section 5 should be signed and dated in Australian date format - DD/MM/YYYY.
  • There should be no alterations or whiteout on your signature and date. 
  • Your signature should be completely inside the white box. It should not touch the outside of the box. 
  • Photos should be checked for size and quality. Use a magnifying glass to ensure they are not grainy, blurry, pixilated or striped. There should be no flash reflection on your face or shadows behind your head.
  • Your name should be printed on the back of one photo.

If you choose to apply in person, you must make an appointment online.
