Default Urgent help - possible imminent divorce of daft husband

So I'm half way through checking the visa application online and putting in the reference numbers of the Teaching Australia assessment and IELTs test when DH casually drops into the conversation that he forgot to renew his passport.

It expired on 18th April. If I don't get the visa application submitted before 11th May we don't have enough points as that's when I turn 30

Any innovative ideas as to what we can do???

I know he could go to the passport office and get on in a day but he works for my dad and we haven't told him!

Apply for the visa and then renew the passport?

You don't need a valid passport when you apply, as long as he has one before it is granted. Send off the applcaition for the visa, then get the passport sorted and forward them the number when you have it

It won't let me do it online with the expired passport, It keeps requesting a valid date which must be after today's date.

He has an appointment on Saturday morning to get a new one so that problem has been solved now! And he won't have to pull a sicky!
