Hi all,

Got my WHV sorted for going out to Oz at the start of November this year so no problems there. Just wanted to know what my options are with one thing that im not sure about..

The problem is that my Passport expires some time in July 2009, so if I wanted to take the option of extending my stay for another year that would take me to November 2009 after my passport had expired! :( Would they grant the 2nd year extension on my visa even with my passport due to expire while I would still be in the country??

Or is there any way that I could renew my passport while out in OZ..british embassy mibbie?..

Cheers for any help ;)

Im off in Nov to, dont worry to much now, you can renew while your out there with the British High Commission in Canberra, they have all the details on there site, you will have to send it off, i think it says it takes about 2 wks, as im planning on doing the same thing.

The most important thing to remember is to change your passport no. with Aus immagration, and you have to get someone to sign your photos again, unless your like and havent aged in 10yrs :)

Hope this helps!
