Adult Renewals (PC7 form) - by mail


   To renew your adult passport by mail, you must be aged 18 years or older and have a passport that:

  • was issued when you were aged 16 or older
  • was issued on or after 1 January 2006
  • had, when it was issued, at least two years’ validity
  • has your current name, date of birth, place of birth and gender, and
  • has not been reported lost, stolen, or cancelled.

   If you don't meet all of these criteria, you’ll need to book an appointment to lodge your application in person.

  • When you create your passports account, you will be directed automatically to the correct form.

2. Print, sign and date your form

  • Print the application on plain white A4 paper in black ink only. You may need to adjust your print settings so that the top/bottom of the pages are not cut off. Applications must be less than six months old.
  • Sign the form using a black pen only, within the white signature box with no alterations or ‘whiteout’ on the signature or the date. If your signature touches the edge of the box or beyond, the application cannot be processed.


3. Supporting documents

PC7s are a streamlined renewal form. You only need to send us:

  • Your completed application form
  • At least two passport photos (see below)


4. Photos

  • Two Australian standard passport photos, less than six months old, with your full name written on the back of one photo with a black pen. The photos must meet our photo guidelines.

    • Please note: It is helpful if you can provide four photos, in case one or both photos are rejected for minor scratches, dust or other blemishes when scanned. We will return any unused photos to you with your new passport.
  • Please do not attach the photos to the form as this may damage them. Send them loose or in an envelope.

5. Payment

  • Once your application is received we will send an electronic invoice and payment link to your email. 
  • Please make sure your email is written on your application. 


6. Mail us your application

  • Please send your completed application form and passport photos to:
         Attn: Passports     
         Australian Embassy
         Box 824
         SE-101 36 Stockholm


  • Please don't send your passport with your application.


7. We will tell you when your passport is ready

We will email you when your passport has arrived at the Embasssy for you to collect, or with the postage tracking details if you have paid for us to post it to you.

Due to increased demand, passports are currently taking 4-6 weeks to arrive at the Embassy from successful lodgement. Incomplete applications will cause delays.

While your application is being processed, your previous passport remains valid until its expiry date. It will be automatically cancelled when you collect your new passport (or 30 days after we have posted it to you).
