Major changes for renewing Australian Passports

Australians will soon be able to renew their passport online in major changes to the way official documents are handled.

The government is finalising moves to allow digital statutory declarations and deeds in all states to streamline passport renewals and electoral roll registration.

It will mean an end to visits to the Post Office with bundles of paperwork signed in person by Justices of the Peace for those wanting a new passport.

Instead they will be able to simply confirm their identity though the Australian Tax Office’s MyGovID app.

The system will also allow the use of digital e-signatures to countersign electronic documents once it is incorporated into the MyGov website and app.
