Passports and Visas


Passports are personal documents and the individual employee will bear the cost of acquisition and/or renewal. For frequent travellers whose directed travel profile requires regular overseas travel, USQ may pay the difference between a standard (35 page) passport fee and a frequent traveller (67 page) passport fee for acquisition and/or renewal.

Six months validity is required on passports to travel to certain destinations. Australian passport application forms are available at Australia Post Offices or from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website. For more information on passports please contact the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Passport photos

Photography is able to provide passport and visa standard photos at a cost to the traveller.


Your respective Travel Officer will advise you of visa requirements when travelling overseas and will arrange to obtain any visas as required. Visa requirements vary depending upon the country of issue of your passport.
