Are we able to renew UK passports in Aus as the kids have only a few years left on thiers?
Is it easy enough to do?
Sorry if posted before, had a quick look but couldnt see anything
Hi yes I did this through the British High Commission in Canberra. Expensive though!
i looked into this and it costs around $275 to renew if you are in oz. i figured it was better to renew while im still in the uk, but i only had around 12 months left on my old passport. i think they add upto 9 months onto your new passport if you are renewing early.
You can do it at Australia Post offices, but it is costly http://auspost.com.au/personal/unite...passports.html
WA SS granted 05/09/2009, 176 applied 04/10/2009, visa grant 08/02/2011, landed Perth 08/04/2011!! Now the fun really starts...
If you live in Australia, UK passports can now only be done through Australian post, they are processed in New Zealand, Costs a lot more than in UK and takes longer.
The High Commission in Canberra no longer deal with it.
