Travelling back to UK (UK passport and permanent resident)

    Recommended Posts


    Probably a dumb question but here goes:

    My wife is heading back to the UK this week for her mums 70th birthday, first time back since we moved out in 2012.

    She has a UK passport and is a permanent resident in Australia. Other than her UK passport does she need to take any other paperwork?

    I applied for ours a couple of weeks ago and they were granted within 5 seconds (on a Sunday!) :)

    Can confirm that both the above posts are correct 🙂

    However, just a side note for others. It is 5 years from the date your visa was approved. I nearly got caught out as I thought it was from the date that you first entered the country on that visa. Whoops!!

    Obviously, Graham moved more than 5 years ago anyway, but just a note for others 🙂
