Frequent Traveller Passports  

From 1 December 2017 Australia will no longer issue Frequent Traveller Passports (67 pages).

From 1 December 2017, if your passport still has more than two years validity remaining and the visa pages are almost full, you may either apply for:

a new 34 page passport with 10 years validity. The cost will be the price of a new passport plus the overseas surcharge. or

a replacement 34 page passport with the same expiry date as the passport being replaced. The replacement cost will be cheaper than a new 10 year validity passport and will not incur an overseas surcharge.

Applicants will need to decide which of the two above replacement options best suit their own circumstances.
