Find out how long it will take to get your passport.
Standard passports are usually processed in approximately 1 month but, due to current backlogs, can take up to 6 weeks. Allow extra time for delivery.
We encourage you to consider this timing when planning a trip and apply for your passport with enough time to spare.
Urgent passports are processed in up to 3 working days. Allow additional time for delivery.
Working days do not include weekends or public holidays.
If you need to travel sooner than 3 days, apply for an urgent passport and then call us straight away. You may need our after-hours service.
