    Default How long did your passport take?

    Hi all, I'm stressing and wondering how long passports (Australian) take to process and be sent out. I did put in the application the date we intend to leave.
    You think they will take notice?

    Would a call towards the end of the week help?

    Thank you

    I renewed my daughters last year, I think it was around 8 working days. I'm pretty sure you can ring - how much time do you have?

    Default How long did your passport take?

    We lodged my DH and both my sons passports on August 27th. We received them all on Thursday this week (10th September).

    It does say on the passport application, turn around time is 3 weeks, or if you need them before hand to pay for a fast processing fee which they arrive within 3 business days.

    My daughters passport took about 2 weeks from processing to our door.

    Did you pay for priority if you need them quickly?

    When did you submit it? When are you travelling? There is online tracking - have you tried that?

    I think ours were around 2 weeks.
    I put mine in a bit close to our intended travel date (a month or a bit more I think), and everyone had me freaking out that they wouldn't come and that they take sooooo long. So I was happy with 2 weeks!
