What citizenship information do I need to provide with my Australian passport application?

When you apply for an Australian passport the Australian Passport Office (APO) must be satisfied that you are an Australian citizen. You must provide proof that you are an Australian citizen.

The evidence you need to provide to demonstrate that you are an Australian citizen might differ depending on whether you were:

  • born overseas
  • born in Australia before 20 August 1986
  • born in Australia on or after 20 August 1986.
