    Default Getting a passport

    For those who have passports, how long does the process generally take?

    I filled in all the papers, had the picture taken and paid all on the same day. I think they told me it could be upto 6 weeks before I received it but I think it was just under 2 weeks. This was in 2008

    The interview is at the postoffice when you submit the form. It's not as exciting as it sounds! They just go through to form and make sure you've done everything right.

    Awesome.

    Another question... when bil got his a couple of years ago, he mentioned something about having to have their dad sign something (or provide something to prove the dad was born in aus?). Does this sound right? Dh has nothing to do with his dad and mil has passed away. Will this be an issue for dh getting a passport?

    Yep this. Because it's an official form of ID and everything they just want to make sure it's all correct and all the required is provided. It's not scary at all

    Is brother in law a little older?

    Me and DP didn't have to do this because we were born AFTER a certain year. Might be the case for you too.

    Yes, I had to do this because of when my Dad he was born. I found this out at the interview funnily enough!
