    Hi folks, I have an interesting dilemma.

    I've just received my Permanent Residancy Visa (wehay !) but I need to renew my UK passport in the next 8 months. I'm heading back to the UK for a holiday in May so thought I might take the opportunity to renew while I'm there. So ... if I get a new passport then my old one with my permanent Res Visa becomes null and void, so what do i need to do to get back home to Oz ? Maybe one or two of you kind helpful people have had experience of this situation ? Thank you :rolleyes:

    Hi Phil. and thanks very much, your info was really helpful. I'm actually in Brisbane now, Coorparoo to be exact, thats about 3km from Brissy CBD, we have been here nearly a year. Were you thinking of moving up this neck of the woods ? I was in Adelaide over Xmas. I thought it was a nice place. If I can help you then I will. As will many others on this site, they're all very helpfull.
