PASSPORT SERVICES (PC8)

 

   How do I apply for a passport?

 

1. Complete a passport application online

  • If you are renewing an adult passport (only) and meet certain criteria, you will be directed to a PC7 form

    • See information on submitting a PC7 here.

  • All other applicants will be directed to a PC8 form.

  • All applications must be lodged within six months of completion.
     

2. Print and complete your PC8 application form

  • Print your application on plain white A4 paper, using black ink only. Make sure your form has printed in full and isn't cut off at the top or bottom of the page. We accept single or double-sided printing.

  • Complete all relevant sections using a black pen, but do not sign any boxes that require a witness yet.
     

3. Gather your supporting documents

For an adult PC8 application, you will need:

 

For a child PC8 application, you will need:

 

These details will be needed to complete the application. When you lodge the application, you must bring the original documents with you. For further information on supporting documents, please see:
How to get a passport when overseas.
 

4. Obtain passport photos

  • Obtain two identical colour photos, less than six months old, that meet the photo guidelines.

    • 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 don't attach the photos to the form as this may damage them.
     

5. Ask someone to be your guarantor

  • Have them complete the relevant sections of your PC8 application form and endorse the back of one of your photos (see instructions on your PC8 application form).

  • See our Frequently Asked Questions on who can be your guarantor.
     

6. Sign your PC8 application form in front of a witness

  • Sign your form using a black pen and ensure relevant sections are witnessed (if applicable)

  • Your guarantor can also serve as your witness, or you can ask someone else to be your witness.
     

7. Book an appointment for an interview in-person
