Important information

The Australian Passport Office can refuse to process an application for an Australian passport if there are reasonable grounds to suspect dishonesty or fraud in the application. Examples include:

  • forging the signature of a person with parental responsibility for a child, whether or not that person consents to the issue of a passport to the child, and
  • failing to identify all persons with parental responsibility for a child.
It is a criminal offence under the Australian Passports Act 2005 to make false or misleading statements in relation to an Australian travel document. There are penalties of up to 10 years imprisonment or a fine of 1000 penalty points, or both.

It is also an offence to fail to report a lost/stolen passport or other Australian travel document immediately the loss is realised. There are penalties of up to one year imprisonment or a fine of 20 penalty points, or both.
