Where do I renew my New Zealand passport in Perth?

Reply from forum moderator 4 months ago on 9 November 2023.

Most NZ citizens can apply online for both passport renewal and new passports.

You may not be able to renew your passport online if:

  • your existing passport was issued before 24 February 1992
  • your first and middle name are longer than 48 characters (including spaces)
  • your surname is longer than 48 characters (including spaces)
  • you have a diacritic in your name (for example, an accent, umlaut or macron)
  • you wear a head covering for religious or medical reasons
  • you had an endorsement on the observation page (page 4) of your last passport
  • you are unable to sign your passport.

Important: If you are renewing your existing passport then you will not be able to travel on it once you have submitted the renewal application online.

Here is what you will need to renew your NZ passport:

  • realme login - https://www.realme.govt.nz/
  • details of your existing NZ passport - the passport number and the issuing authority (e.g. DIA WLG/Wellington).
  • an identity referee who is over 16, has a current or expired NZ passport, has known you for at least 12 months, and agrees to be your referee (the passport office says they might contact them to verify details of your application). A referee cannot be family or live at the same address as you.
  • a colour passport photo less than 6 months old - https://www.passports.govt.nz/passport-photos/how-to-take-a-passport-photo/
  • a credit or debit card for payment.
  • an address to deliver your new passport.

At the moment, due to Covid, all walk-in counters are closed so you will need to complete the paper application and mail it to the Sydney office to renew your passport. The form is here: https://www.passports.govt.nz/assets/Uploads/Forms/Adult-Renew.pdf
