Part 02 Applying for a Passport
 
03:37
Passports are Australia’s most secure and technologically advanced form of ID, used by around 9 million Australians to travel overseas every year. By law, Australians who can prove their identity and citizenship are entitled to a passport, if they apply with all the documents needed and pay the application fee. People can do this at one of 1600 Australia Post outlets, by special appointment at one of the capital city passport offices, or at an Australian embassy, High Commission or consulate overseas. A standard application for a passport, which has all required information, generally takes about 3 weeks to complete after lodgement. This includes delivery time. For an additional fee, most applicants can indicate that they want priority processing when they lodge their applications to guarantee processing of a passport application in 2 business days, not including delivery. http://www.passports.gov.au
