British passports

If you need to renew or apply for a British passport, we can check your declaration form and supporting documentation* before you mail them.

How we can help

If you visit a participating Post Office, our staff can:

  • take your passport photos or review the photos you provide
  • check that your declaration form is complete*
  • check your supporting documentation*
  • recommend an international delivery option for you to purchase

If your application is approved, your new passport and supporting documentation will be delivered separately by Her Majesty's Passport Office.

Please note

Effective 13 January 2014, all British passport applications and payments must be completed online at the British government website.

As a result, Australia Post staff no longer check application forms or collect application fees, but we can still take your photo and check your supporting documents before you mail them.
