Australian law states that everyone has a right to be issued a new identity document.
But how do you get one?
In the case of the Australian government, the process can take days, weeks or even months to get an ID card.
What can you get?
If you’re already in Australia and your Australian passport has expired, you may have the right to a replacement passport.
But if you haven’t, the government will issue you with a replacement ID card if you get an Australian driver’s licence.
