We’re discontinuing the 66-page frequent traveller passport. Demand has fallen sharply, as more countries issue electronic visas and stop using border stamps. Existing 66-page passports will remain valid until they expire. But you won’t be able to apply for a new one after 30 November 2017.
Emergency passport (4 pages):
7-months validity: € 117.00
Overseas Surcharge (in addition to the passport fee):

Your new Passport can be collected from the Embassy/Consulate. If you are unable to do so, a postage fee of € 4.00 is charged for registered mail within Germany. The Australian Embassy Berlin cannot send the passport to a location outside of Germany.
