How long does Australian passport take to process?

How long does Australian passport take to process?

Someone please tell me I have to travel to Europe in less than 2 months and the passports.gov website does not specify how long an ordinary passport takes to fully process.

They have a sort of express passport which takes up to 2days to fully finish and be sent back out to you but it costs an extra $105.

Can someone please tell me how long an ordinary passport takes to finish before it gets back to you? Or do the times vary? Like 15 days to 2months?

I need mine to get back to me FAST but not the express $105 one. I'll tick the $105 one if there's a chance that the ordinary one gets back to me too late.

Thanks and I appreciate the replies!

P.S I'm an Australian citizen.

Hi,
I applied at my local post office & they said it will take 10 working days but i got a call from them after 4 working days to say it's ready to pick up.This was 2 years ago though!
So count on about 2 weeks waiting or hopefully less.

cheers

Pay extra and you can get a passport in two days.

My husband applied for his and it took 10 days, you shouldn't have to wait 2 months, if after a couple of weeks you don't receive it then contact them. Anywhere between 7-14 days. Don't worry you,ll be travelling lol

Please update your flag here .

My passport came in ten days including one weekend. So count for max 2 weeks. You dont need to pay extra $$ unless you want your passport in two days.
