Hi, am new to the forum, I'm 26 and from Shropshire, been in Aus for nearly 3 years on a working holiday and then a 457. I'm returning home, where (after a good week or two drinking) I'm going to try the state sponsorship route and come back ASAP to my girlfriend, dog and the ridiculous amounts of money they pay us here for doing 1/3 of the work. One issue I'm having at the moment is my passport, I lost it and am fairly certain I filled in a JS01 form (lost or stolen). Shortly after, the police contacted me and said they'd found it. Can I still travel on this passport? The main question is: can somebody please give me a contact number for someone in Adelaide I can talk to? I've only managed to find a passport office in NZ, and a contact number for an embassy in Adelaide who gave me a thoroughly mind-numbing automated rundown of all the possible websites I could ever hope to visit. I really need to talk to an actual person about this, and fairly urgently as I'm hoping to be getting on a plane in roughly 3 weeks, the weather is starting to depress me here now and my money is running low. Any help would be very very very much appreciated. If I can just check with someone that this passport is valid or not, as I'm not even sure I sent in a JS01 form, and maybe even if I did I can just cancel the cancellation of it. Am half-tempted to just book a cheap flight to NZ, and if my passport works then happy days, I'm from Shropshire so am well used to sheep as it is and then I know it works. Thanks for any help, Chris.
As I said, email them with all that information. Give them the passport number etc and enquire if it is cancelled or not and if not if its still ok to travel on. If it is cancelled then you need to get a new passport.
