Passport expired during the Application process

Post by rasel » Sat Jul 09, 2011 12:03 am

Hi,
I have applied for the extension for my Tier 1 Generel visa last month and also have the biometric taken. I just realised that my passport actually expired this month.

I am just a bit tensed as what will happen. would they stop processing my application and send me back the passport to get it renewed or will process it anyway? OR would they just refuse it on the ground that the passport is expired?

Thanks very much

unfortunately they wont process your application as the passport is not valid , my friend had such issue and his passport was sent to airport for him to be picked and leave the country.

That's contrary to previous instructions.

When did this happen?
How did they expect him to travel on an expired passport?

Its very clear you cannot apply for any visa if your passport is expiring within 6 months

You can reissue your passport at nearest indian embassy in UK. You don't have to leave UK.
