Change of passport form 929?

Hey! My foreign passport is going to expire and I plan on going to Singapore to renew it because the flight is $500 cheaper than to Canberra.

How do I enter Australia again if it's a new passport and my visa is linked to the expired passport? I know to change passport details I need to submit Form 929. But currently the processing time for 929 is 40 days!

If I go to Singapore to renew then email form 929 with the new pp details, I still have to wait there more than a month before the visa is transferred to the new pp. That's way too long to be there. How can I get around this? Thanks!

If you applied online you can change your passport details online without using form 929.

Please update your flag here .

I have the same problem.

I have been granted with tourist visa subclass 600. I made a renewal of my passport because of the expiration date of the old passport.



My question is: should I wait for change of passport details to be shown on VEVO or I can bring my old passport together with my new passport before that change is applied on VEVO and won't have any problems entering Australia?

Thank you.

I didn't apply online. Mine is visa 461, only paper applications accepted.

Will I be able to come back into Australia with the new passport if I show them my expired passport with the visa in it and inform them that I'm going to transfer the visa to the new one asap?

I'm Singaporean so I thought it'd be easier to renew my pp there, as I have to go there soon anyway to attend to some stuff. 2 birds 1 stone and all that. But I might just have to take your suggestion if I can't find a viable solution.

No problem; if the carrier will transport you.
