Passport Name Change


It's free to update your passport provided you do so within one year of your wedding or divorce. Your passport will be updated with your new name, however the expiry date will remain as per your existing passport. If you have legally changed names, are reverting to your maiden name without divorce or have less than 2 years validity remaining you must apply for a 10 year replacement passport and full fees are payable.

Free service – keeping current expiry date

This is only available if you are changing your name within a year of your marriage or divorce order.  Your passport expiry date will remain unchanged. Applications must be written on an original passport application form, which can be obtained at any Post Office. You are unable to complete your application online. All applicants will also need to lodge their application at the post office. Interview times can be arranged by calling 13 7678.

Renewing your passport for another 10 years

Pay the replacement fee and renew your passport for another 10 years by completing the application online. Always check online for the latest fees.  If you prefer you can pick up a passport application form at a post office.  You will also need to have a brief passport interview regardless if you choose to enter your details online or on a paper copy.
