Can you lodge a visa application without your passport....

Recommended Posts

.....and add it later in the process?

I submitted my nomination application to NSW last week, and then realised some of our passports had expired and others were due to over the next 12 months. I sent them all in yesterday thinking I would have 4-6 weeks for the nomination to be processed, but have woke up this morning to an approved nomination and Invitation to Apply for my visa. I know I have 60 days to lodge the visa application and fingers crossed they will be back before then as current processing time is estimated at 20-30 days, but if there is a delay am I able to lodge my visa application and then add the passport numbers at a later date?

If you have scans of your old passports (I hope so, or at least the numbers), then apply with those if necessary. You can update the application with the new details later.

 


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

Thanks @rammygirl that’s a good idea. I was worried as my 2 year old has never had a passport, but have seen on the form you only have to put passport details for over 5s at this stage 😅😅

I did my application with 4years to passport expiry. And after 4 years updated my new passport. No problem.

So the problem I’m having is that I don’t have scans of my husband’s or daughter’s passports, and having just spoke to DoHA on the phone they seemed to think that even if I did have scans I shouldn’t put those details in as they are no longer accurate 😫😫😫

The guy I spoke to was really nice and having spoken to the technical support team he seemed to think there were a couple of options. They me to put it in writing via the technical support form and wait to hear back from them. It will be a nail biting couple of weeks for me I think!
