Re: British Passport Renewal

The MM2H visa is a 10 year visa and is transferable (for the time being anyway😁)

Re: British Passport Renewal

You're right, except we have our "Malaysia My 2nd Home" retirement visa in the old passport. We'll need it to transfer the visa to the new passport.

Re: British Passport Renewal

Yes, I can understand the security issue and I didn't realise that processing took place in different areas. It's just annoying. It would help if they gave you a tracking number.

Re: British Passport Renewal

Sounds awful! Fortunately, ours still had a year left on them. We received our new ones 5 weeks after sending off the old passports. I just can't understand why they don't return the old ones with...

Question British Passport Renewal

If anyone has recently renewed their British passport, can you tell me how long, after receiving the new passport, did it take for the old passport to be returned.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Re: Has anyone done an extension recently?

This group on Facebook is very active and there was a recent post by someone who had just done a renewal. It seemed to be pretty easy. Good luck!

Re: Cancelling MM2H

Thanks RedApe. We have a while yet, so hopefully things will have sorted themselves out by then.

Re: Cancelling MM2H

The thing is, every time we've been to a bank to make a change, negotiate FDs, etc., they look through the passports and we assumed they were checking the MM2H stamp.

Re: Cancelling MM2H

Thanks Flyguy! How long ago was it that you were able to open the account? When we're next able to get back to Malaysia, we'll visit the banks and see what they say. No HSBC account I'm afraid.

Re: Peninsular MM2H reactivated from October, new conditions

Unbelievable! And apparently it's going to apply to extensions too - How many people have that sort of income a month?

Re: Renewing British Passport from Australia

On a side note the new passports are actually manufactured by a French-Dutch company in Poland. :)[/QUOTE]

Thanks for the update Astera! I did think that Brexit may slow things down. Wasn't there talk of a new passport cover?

Re: Renewing British Passport from Australia

Hi astera, I'd be interested to know how long it takes to get your new passport once you've sent the old one off. I imagine with Covid and Brexit it will take longer than the normal 4-6 weeks?

Re: Renewing British Passport from Australia

Thanks Dreamy! I had read the bit about the paper forms but then read something else that contradicted it. I have written to the UKGov site - Will wait to hear what they come up with. Thanks again...
