But surely a UK passport isn't considered sufficient for buying tea bags???

Glad you found it! Things should only improve now. Nice to get a shocker out of the way so soon really.

My Husband is going back to UK for 2 weeks, will it be enough time to renew the passport there? Peterborough is nearent office i think. Do you go in personally and get it there and then? Also what do you do about visa stamp and does it matter if you come back into Aus with a different passport? Thanks in advance, i know its probably on here somewhere but can't find info i'm looking for.

UK Passport Office link is here - should tell you whether you can get a personal appointment in Peterborough. As for the visa labvel - you travel with both passports, and show the visa lable in the expired one. Please leave extra time at check in just in case they want to check the visa with DIAC! When you get back to Aus go to your nearest DIAC office (details on www.immi.gov.au) and they will put a label in the new passport for free.

Default Re: Renewal of UK Passports in OZ.

Apologies if this has been asked before in this thread, but ...
I am wanting to renew my daughter's passport. She is now almost 15 and had a passport last time at 9. The instructions state that you only need a countersignature on the photo if the last one has changed significantly. Does this count? She was obviously younger but is still quite recognisable as the same person.
What do people think - signature needed or not?
Thanks
