Details of the new fee structure below.

PASSPORT FEES

Fees are payable in Indian Rupees only and can be made by cash, Debit/Credit cards (except American Express) or by Demand Draft. Fees are subject to exchange rate fluctuations and/or increases in the passport fees. Applicants intending to apply by mail should check with the High Commission to ensure the fee forwarded is valid for that month. Please note: We do not accept payment by personal cheque.

NB: If your application is incomplete or incorrect (e.g. unacceptable photographs), we will return the application form and supporting documents to you.

Since the Australian passport fee is subjected to change every month due to the rate variance between the AUS$ and INR, the High Commission recommends that all the applicants should contact the Consular Section to confirm the exact amount of passport application fee.
