Holiday in UK - Do we require Visa Label ina UK Passport

    Recommended Posts

    My family and I arrived in February 2010 on a Skilled Regional Passport (Subclass 475) and then in March 2012 we gained Skilled Regional Visa (Subclass 887). We still have the old visa label in our current passport and two members of our family have gained new UK passports and currently have no visa label in their passport.

     

    We are aware that you no longer require a visa label to work in Australia, but do we need a label if we are leaving Australia and want to return to Australia to live and work, if NO! Is there anything we need to do before we leave Australia so we can return without any problems.

     

    I look forward to your responses...................

     

    With kind regards

    You can notify Aus immigration of the new passport numbers etc and they will update the visas to attach to the new ones. The forms are online.

     

    Carry the old passports in case if you like.

    Does that mean the UK passport authority would have contacted/informed the Australian immigration regarding our children's new passport details

    I have just got off the phone with the immigration they said exactly what you have mentioned to me, even give me the same link. Like you said you have to inform the immigration department our new passport details via completing the Form 929 and either posting or faxing it back to them via the address of the Form 929.

     

    Thanks for your help Snifter and Claire-n-tel

     

     

     

    You need to inform Aus immigration of your new passport numbers etc. They then electronically link the visas to the new passports. Labels are not issued any more. Carry the old passports also if you wish, to show the label.

     

    Read this PDF

    What is the address I post the Form 929 to, Immigration told me that the address is on the actual form but it is not

     

    I looked on the PDF

     

    Return the completed form to the office where you lodged your

    application or if your visa has been granted, to the nearest office

    of the department.

     

    It lists the departments on there.

    The addresses are on page 2 of Form 929 - the info pages. Follow Snifters link if you do not have them on your copy.

    Tony - I just walked into Adelaide DIAC office on Currie Street and asked them to link them. Took 10 minutes and I watched them do it as my sister in law did the forms and they still didn't link all of them and they had grief coming back in.

        Hey all,
         
        Im new to Adelaide, been here around a month or so after travelling Australia an I'm looking for regional work to sign me off for my 2nd year visa! Currently on 1 year working holiday... Don't know if this is the right place to ask but thought it would be worth a try and see if anyone knew anything or had any suggestions? 
         
        Thanks all, Harry

        Hi. Wondered what people generally do re. travel insurance when returning to the UK for holidays/to visit family? I am British and now also an Australian citizen. My partner is Australian. Our daughter has an Australian passport, was born here, but dual citizen as I am British.
        I have always just purchased an annual travel insurance policy, but ours is currently out of date. We don't have any other big trips planned this year, so wondering about purchasing cover just for a trip this year which is 3 weeks in the UK visiting family and 2 weeks in France. Presumably I am covered for medical issues in the UK and I wouldn't need to be insured for spending time in the UK in my parents' home... but obviously want to be covered for any flight issues / trip cancellation / luggage loss.
        Or is there no way to separate these, and we need just to buy general travel insurance cover, just as any Australian family would when visiting the UK? Thanks in advance for any advice!
