How do I apply for a U.S. passport renewal in Australia?

When it's time for renewal, especially in Australia, you need smooth, secure, and practical passport services. Here is a general guide to the steps you’ll need to take:

  • Step 1: Gather required documents.

  • Step 2: Submit an application form. You have two options for submission:

Mail-in: Send your application to the U.S. Consulate or passport office through an express courier service or the nearest post office.

In-person: Schedule an appointment at the nearest U.S. Consulate or Embassy.

  • Step 3: Track and wait. You can track your application status online once submitted. Renewal generally takes 4-6 weeks, but expedited options may be available. If traveling within 15 business days, you may need to apply for an emergency passport.

  • Step 4: Receive your new passport. You'll be notified once your new passport is ready for pick-up or is dispatched for delivery.

What are the requirements for a U.S. passport renewal application in Australia?

Before you embark on the renewal journey, ensure you have all the essential supporting documents in order:

  • Your recent passport: It should be undamaged, issued when you were 16 or older, and not older than 15 years.

  • Passport photos: Two recent, 2x2-inch passport photos meeting U.S. standards. Remember that unacceptable photos are the most common reasons passport renewal applications are denied. Use our online [passport photo service] to get government-compliant pictures from the comfort of your home.

  • DS-82 form: The passport application form for renewals. Fill out the form online or by hand and ensure it's signed and dated.

  • Fees: Payment can usually be made by check or money order payable to "U.S. Department of State."
