Australian Passport and Notarial Fees
The fee is payable upon lodgement of the passport application/upon the performance of the notarial service. Fees must be paid in Euro by debit (EC) or credit card. The Australian Embassy Berlin and the Consulate-General in Frankfurt do not accept cash payments.
You should normally allow up to three weeks to receive a new passport. It can take longer if more information is needed or your application hasn’t been filled out correctly.
Ordinary passport (34 pages):
10 - year validity for persons aged 16 and over
5 - year validity for children under 16 years and optional for persons aged 75 years and over
Replacement Passport (34 pages):
Only available to overseas applicants with full visa pages or minor damages but more than 2 years validity remaining on their current passport. A replacement passport will be issued with the same expiry date as the passport being replaced: €123 (no overseas surcharge)
Only Australian citizens can be issued with an Emergency passport in circumstances where either they cannot complete all requirements (other than identity, citizenship and entitlement) for the issue of a full validity passport or they can complete all requirements but there is a need to travel urgently. This travel document will contain only 4 visa pages and the validity will be limited to a period between seven and twelve months, to meet the immediate travel needs of the client. The Emergency Passport would be guaranteed within two working days, once all requirements are fulfilled. A full validity passport may be applied for simultaneously, utilising the same application as for the Emergency Passport.
It is the responsibility of the holder to ensure the travel document is suitable for entry, transit and exit for any ongoing travel including visa requirements.
