Passport will expire while in OZ

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

will be out on a 457 come the end of this year, then we plan to apply for PR with the family as soon as is possible after that, 18 months-2 years.

now, my UK passport expires 03-15.

so, my (maybe silly) question is, how much validation time do I need on my passport to make the trip?

and, can I revalidate my UK passport while in Perth?


thanking you kindly.

There is no offshore/onshore visa distinctions for skilled migration - therefore no validation trip will be required after applying for PR, but you will require a valid passport for the application.


You can apply for a new passport in Australia - it will cost alot more than if apply from UK - often if you apply early for a new passport you will get an extra 9 months depending on how much time you have left on the old one.
