Passport processing times over the Christmas/New Year Period
Australian Passport Offices, Australia Post, APIS and major passport issuing diplomatic missions overseas will close for several days over the Christmas and New Year period. If you need your new passport before Christmas, we recommend that you lodge your application by 26 November 2014.
You should normally allow up to three weeks to receive a new passport. Passport office and agency closures over the Christmas and New Year period mean that passport applications lodged after 26 November 2014 will take longer than usual to be processed. See http://www.passports.gov.au/ for more details.
