Hello all,

My dad emigrated to Australia from Ireland in 1971 and has permanent residency (visa subclass 111).

His Irish passport expired and he needs to get his permanent residency visa either put into his new passport or linked to his new passport (we're not sure which!)

Can anyone tell me what we need to do and how to go about doing it?

(He nearly didn't get back into Australia the last time he returned from overseas, because he was just carrying his expired passport with the permanent resident visa in it and they said that wasn't enough anymore).

Hope this question makes sense!
Thanks
Emma

Thanks so much! That is exactly what I wanted. I have one other quick question...the only tricky question on the form is that it asks where the application was lodged. It was in 1971, so dad can't remember. He came in 1971 from the UK and married my mum. Would he have lodged the application in London before he left (he was one of the last 10 pound poms ) Or would it have been done in Melbourne (where he lived with my mum for the first year)?
