    Renewing british passport whilst in australia

    Also- why is it asking for my mum and dads original marriage certificate AND my dads original birth certificate??! Is that right- those are pretty tough documents to get a hold of.... Especially when I live in aus and they both live in the UK.... So confused I'm not sure if it applys to me and I've got the wrong form... But it prints off a checklist for a person born in UK after 1982 and father born in UK. My mum is UK born too- why has it not an option for both parents born in UK?!

    Initial entry date

    Little bit confused by all this valid from entry dates/ resident return visa stuff.. If I am given august as my date to last enter- and say I went over in April or nay to validate my visa- do you reckon I would be all good to then leave again, have baby at hone in September and then move over Australia officially by say march or April 2013?

    Initial entry date

    Sorry what do you mean by time frame? Thanks for all the info . You have helped a lot. So saymy initial entry date is august 3rd 2012. I could go in say April for validating and a holiday... Then come home. Have baby- and then come back whenever? Is there a specific timescale in which you are allowed to spend out of the country? Thanks

    Initial entry date

    Wow I think you have just solved my problems, so you actually migrated there after baby born? Did your child have to get a visa? My partner is uk and aussi citizen, so ther is no problem with him getting in and out of uk. I thought when you were granted a visa you had to be in and living there from the date given. I did not realize you could leave over a long period without it causing any problem. Thank you so much for the info I feel so relieved j don't have to rush over there to set up camp, just yet.

    So when you went in to validate- how long after did you actually move over there? I just don't want to bombard my co with loads of questions until I have looked into it all properly. Thanks peach

    Thanks peach. Do you know if you can enter before your initial entry date? As I could do that... To validate it, then go home again. Or is that just going to cause problems when I re appear with a new born baby?!

    Initial entry date

    Thank you for your help. Yes have had my Medicals. I applied for partner visa in nov and had all my checks meds etc done in august. I was well prepared! If only I knew this was going to happen and I would have put my visa ap in later. This was not planned and now the idea of leaving for Australia is terrifying me. I'm going to want nothing more than to have my mum and family around me ! Does anybody know of you are able to postpone a visa to a later date? Even if I need to do my Medicals , police checks etc again?

    Initial entry date

    I am being processed for a 309 partner visa. I'm in the uk at the moment, and have fallen pregnant- I'm 5 weeks in. I believe that when you are granted your partner visa they give you an "initial entry" date which goes from when your police clearances etc are valid from- so I'm calculating by my papers I'll be given august as this is when I revieved my clearances etc. Problem with this is that I'm actually at bursting point with baby! And if I leave any sooner I am not going to receive any maternity pay from my work. This is a real tricky one- if anybody can give any advice please do... Does anybody know if the date can be Saunders given the circumstances? Thanks x

    Pregnant while pending partner visa please help

    Thanks for th quick replys guys. I have no Medicals to undergo I literally had absolutely everything and handed the lot over. I was only asked for a few letters of corrospondance for my partner and that was it. We had our phone interview about 4 weeks ago and we were just waiting for the yes or no really... And then this happened! I wasnt sure if putting an application on hold was possible but definitely what I was hoping for as I know I will need my mum through this bit! Also we have not hot a house in Australia yet so that too needs to be sorted. Thank you for the congratulations as I have hade none of those yet! Has been a massive shock and everyone is more like... What the he'll are you going to do?! ... Everything will work out though I'm sure. X:unsure:
