Frequently asked questions
What happens if my passport expires during this time?
There is no penalty for letting your passport expire. Renewing a passport is a personal choice, but you may not be able to leave Indonesia without a valid passport. If you do plan to travel or need a passport for another reason such as VISA, KITAS/ KITAP renewals, we encourage you to make an appointment to see us.
What if I need to travel unexpectedly due to an emergency?
Please apply for an emergency passport as soon as possible by following the instructions above. We can generally issue an emergency passport within 5 working days. If you need to travel more quickly, please call us to discuss your circumstances.
Will I lose Australian citizenship if my passport expires?
No. The status of your passport has no effect on your Australian citizenship.
Will I have to complete a longer application form if my passport expires?
It depends. Adults may have to complete a longer form if they wait longer than 3 years to renew their passport after it expires.
What if I don’t feel safe travelling to the embassy?
We understand that you may not feel it is safe to travel at this time. For some people, the best option is to wait until you feel ready to apply in person.
What if I am medically unable to travel to your office?
Please contact us to discuss your circumstances. If there is a reason why you need a passport but you have medical evidence that you are unable to travel, you may be able to apply for a temporary passport by mail.
Do I have to replace my temporary/emergency passport in person at your office?
Yes. If you are issued a temporary or emergency passport, you must lodge a new application using the PC8 Application for an Australian Passport Overseas form (not the renewal form) in person at one of our offices. Adults may lodge at any location worldwide. For child applications, the application must be lodged at an office in the country where the child is physically located.
Do I need six months validity on my passport to travel?
It depends. If you are travelling to Australia, your Australian passport must be valid (not expired) on the date you arrive in Australia. If your passport expires while you are in Australia, you can apply for a new passport in Australia.
If you are travelling to a different country, you can review the entry/exit requirements for your intended destination on Australia's Smartraveller site.
