The Indian High Commission in Australia has recently announced that it will start accepting applications to re-issue International Driving Permits to Indian nationals.
The Indian consulates in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth will start accepting applications from eligible applicants 15 February 2021.
These changes have been made in the Motor Vehicle Rules considering the fact that sometimes the International Driving Permit gets expired and there is no mechanism for its renewal abroad.
The International Driving Permits issued by India are accepted across 15 countries including Australia.
To ensure your application can be processed, kindly ensure all documents are provided to VFS Centre as stated in the checklist.
- Misc. Consular Service Form.
- Current Valid Passport in original.
- Expired/expiring International Driving Permit of the applicant in original.
- Current valid Indian domestic driving license in original.
The fees for this service is AUD16 plus ICWF charge of AUD3 along with VFS Service charge.
The validity of International Driving Permit is one year from the date of its issue.
