Updating your us passport
But I highly recommend that you reach there before 8am if you don’t want to wait too long.
When I did my renewal, I arrived exactly at 8am and even then I’m already at queue number 17 and it took about 45 minutes to get to my turn.

There isn’t much place to park around the High Commission.
So, if you really are not able to bring exact change, you probably do not have to get too stressed out. When you arrive at the High Commission, get your photo ID ready and exchange for the entrance pass.
Just hope for the best that they do have some change to spare. Try to wear darker shirts or tops if you do not want to wear the jacket or coats provided at the High Commission. Tell them that you are there to renew your passport and you would be provided with a form as the one below.
As instructed by the High Commission / Consulate General, VFS Australia shall accept only online filled, printed and signed application’s form at all IPVSC locations.
In compliance with the regulations of International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), only machine readable printed passports are now to be accepted for international travel.
