You could redirect to one of those collection boxes Auspost has? May be easier? They should have that option on the email you received.

we lost our receipt with the slip attached but have a picture of it so we were just going to give them that!

Its a shame we can't contact VFS to change delivery address, as I may or may not be at my current address when it is time to get my passport back

I had an option to redirect to another address in the email I received from AusPost.

Don't think it should affect delivery times too much in Melbourne (from what cattyk had said in her post, it was next day delivery to Melbourne).
Everything takes forever to get to Perth (posted on Thu, received on Mon - even with Express Post)

They said it would take an extra day to deliver so I’d rather just wait outside our old apartment and wait lol luckily there’s no one renting it at the moment. We are taking our cats with us so the quicker we get the decision the quicker we can sort them out 😁

Thank you!! I will let you guys know tomorrow how it goes!
yea it’s incredibly frustrating that you can’t contact anyone as circumstances could change in the time you get your passport back! We have temporarily moved about 3 hours away from Melbourne so I will be trekking down and back up tomorrow hopefully with good news! 😁😁🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

All your preparations going smoothly so far?

Oh wow! Hope you don't have a long wait.
It came at the same time as the regular post (if that helps)

It is but we’ve been waiting what feels like ages for the answer!
We are pretty much ready to go, we have our furniture & other stuff in storage ready to be shipped. My cats paper work and vaccinations are all ready to go but they can’t go straight away as the government have to be given 10 business days notice that they are leaving the country. Then it’s just booking flights, finding a rental at home & a car.
Both myself and my partner have jobs to go back to so we are literally just waiting for a Yes!

How long have have you been waiting for?

Oh that is so exciting!!
You're so organised!
Do you mind if I ask who you will be using to ship to the UK?

It's been 23 business day for me at the moment

Haha thank you, they give you such a short amount of time to get over there it’s hard to organise everything at short notice and not pay an arm and a leg for everything!
We are using king and Wilson, they haven’t been too bad and the price was ok for what we are shipping- probably cost more to buy it all at home!
