  1. I am looking to renew my Uk passport due to it expiring in the next couple of months. I have applied online through the UK Gov website and paid all the fees and now it's asking me to send in my current passport before they continue with processing my new one! Has anyone else done this recently? I wouldn't be too fussed normally but with COVID it says there is a lot of delays which I could live with, but I am also doing my PR at the moment. I have my medical in a few weeks and need my passport for that, I am not sure if I will need it for anything after that either. It seems a bit of a strange way to do it by sending your current passport off and being left without one until you receive the new one. Has anyone got any advice? Cheers

    Tricky passport situation ???

    Hi can anyone help with some advice on this tricky situation? My Husband was born in Australia and has dual nationality with the UK. We are currently in Australia but unfortunately he has lost/misplaced both his UK and Australian passports which would both have expired anyway. We want to return to the UK where both of our families are and may need to do so urgently and permanently due to very difficult and complex health issues. We just don't know which passport would be the quickest and cheapest to go for in this case?
  3. Hello all I have left myself in a bit of a situation. I am due to fly back to the uk on the 24th of april to see my dad who has been sick. I have sent off for my passport to be renewed recently but I don't think it will arrive back here in time. What options do I have. I am travelling with my wife and 6 month old son who will be meeting my parents for the 1st time. I really can not miss this flight. Any help really appreciated many thanks carl
  4. Applying for or renewing a UK passport when living in Australia (or elsewhere overseas) I thought I'd post this in its own thread as its come up a few times lately and each time the info just gets lost in amongst it all. Please read these links if you need to apply for or renew a UK passport and are living in Australia. I've embedded them all into the post so links are in red (orange to some) text. British High Commission in New Zealand website - where all UK passport applications from Australia now are processed. So What Passport Do I Need? Once you know which one you require you go to the following page How To Apply From Australia . On that page you can download all the forms to apply, find the price list and more. Checklist 1 - Renewing An Exisiting UK Passport This is a PDF and clarifies if you need a counter signatory or not for your passport application (the 2 year rule of when you need a counter signature and knowing a person long enough to counter sign confuses some people). I've pasted it below also Checklist 1- Renewing an existing British Passport NOTE: THIS CHECKLIST IS NOT APPLICABLE FOR OLD BLUE/BLACK PASSPORTS Please tick each box in the checklist below to ensure you have all relevant documents. o Completed passport application form. (C1 or C2). Applications signed with the signature outside the box will be returned. o Completed your application form in full using black ink. o Enclosed TWO identical passport sized photographs on a cream/off white background. Photographs not meeting standards required by the UK passport services will be returned. o If your appearance is very different from the photo in your current or last passport, you should get your photo & form countersigned. All children under 12 must have their form countersigned. (Temp residents see note below) o Counter signatory (If required): Must complete all details (C1-Sec9 or C2-Sec8). Incomplete counter signatory detail is the number one reason for rejected passport applications. o Enclosed your current/existing passport(s). Photocopies are not acceptable. Note : For those in the country for less than 2 years, on holiday or visiting, and don’t know anyone, you can have your application & photo countersigned by a professional (Policeman, J.P., Lawyer etc) attesting to your likeness. They will not be required to complete the personal declaration at section 9 C1 or Section 8 C2. An explanation of your circumstance should be made at Section 7 C1 or section 6 C2. ****** If you live elsewhere and need to renew or apply for a UK passport you can find your country of residence on the list HERE Hopefully that covers things for people. All the relevant information you need can be found within those official links on the pages somewhere. If there is anything specific you can't find it is best to use the contact information given on the fco.co.uk website and find out directly from them. Cheers snifter

    Passport expiry

    Hi I was granted a Skilled Migrant Visa (175) in June 2011, expires June 2016. I've just secured a job and will be moving out with my family in May. I have 2 and a half years left on my passport (July 2016). Does anyone have any advice re. 1) if there are visa requirements around length of time left on passport 2) If it would be sensible to renew my passport from the Uk before we go, or do it from Australia nearer the expiry date. Many thanks. Jen
  6. Hi Guys I'm a permanent UK resident in AUS. Can anyone please tell me the best thing to do if you lose your UK passport. Do I need to apply for a new permanent resident's visa (bloody hope not). I think the passport I lost was coming due for renewal. Also, if you leave the country with a UK passport on a permanent visa, I heard its difficult to get back in, or you need a re-entry visa, could anyone clarify these issues. Would be awesome. Thanks
  7. My husband and I are on the list, waiting on 804 Aged Parent visas. We have 2 sons both now Australian citizens and a grand-daughter born in Australia. Our passports are due for renewal this November, so our question is this: Are we required to keep our passports active while we wait for our sub-class 804 visa to come through, or can we let them lapse? We have absolutely no reason or desire to ever go back to the UK. Hoping someone can clarify this.
