Picking up passports in Ireland

The passport office has advised that effective 1 January 2015 that if you travel to Ireland on a temporary passport you may not collect your full passport from any passport office in Ireland. Your full passport will be sent to the Honorary Consulate in Perth (or the office where you lodged your passport application). You are therefore expected to return to Australia on your temporary passport and exchange same for your full passport as soon as possible after arrival. It is your obligation to ensure that you contact Australian Emigration so that your visa is attached to your temporary passport and that that you have satisfied all immigration requirements for re-entry.

Don't ruin your holiday by being stranded at the airport

An increasing number of people are being stranded at the Perth international Airport because they have less than 6 months validity on their passport. Please note that many countries such as Indonesia will not permit you to visit unless you have 6 months to expire on your passport. Also, many countries will not accept temporary passports so please renew your passport in plenty of time and check that the countries you intend to visit will accept a temporary passport . Sadly, we’ve had recent cases where kids and partners cannot travel to Bali or elsewhere because one member of the family has less than 6 months validity on their passport.
