Renewal Form PC7 

The Passport Renewal Application form (PC7) streamlines the application process for certain Australian citizens.  The form is pre-completed with information from your previous passport application.  Blank application forms can not be printed.

All applications must be lodged in person by the applicant at the Australian Consulate-General in Hong Kong. You must pay the application fee when you lodge.

When can I use the PC7 form?

You can use the PC7 form in the following circumstances:

When you are renewing your adult passport, and your most recently issued adult passport

  • was issued after 1 July 2000; AND
  • was issued in your current name, date of birth and sex; AND
