Do Australian PR’s need to Renew their Foreign Passports?.
The question seems self explanatory, as most people assume that they need to have a valid passport while in a foreign country.
But do they?
I am pretty sure that some countries would insist on anyone in their country having a valid passport. After all, a visa is normally attached to a person’s passport.
But, does Australia?
I have read on various forums that a valid foreign passport is NOT needed, for an Australian Permanent Resident visa holder, while inside Australia.
Also, from my personal experience, I did not hold any passport for 4 years, before I applied for my Australian Citizenship.
I even explained that I was applying for Australian Citizenship as my other passport had expired, when I asked about faster processing, for Citizenship and Australian Passport, so I could travel. It was not an issue at that time.
