Question Australian Passport - how long does it take?

How long do you have to wait between filling out the forms and getting the passports?

10 days here in Adelaide for my daughter. 20 for me - they rejected my photo
because of reflections on the lenses of my glasses !, so had to resubmit.

The passports are now electronic. I think the photo is on the chip, so they are very
picky about getting photos that are 100% compliant with their requirements.

You can track your application online:

I'll be using my new Aussie passport this Saturday for a trip to NZ.
