Passport expires in UK

edited August 2010 in - Britain and Ireland
Hi David and Expert,
I am a Pakistani national in UK on student visa ,my passport expires in Jan 2011 while I have visa valid upto July 2012. My passport can be renewed by Pakistan embassy. Do I need to transfer my visa to the new valid passport(Is it necessary)? I am very comfortable with the idea of having two passport, with the new one as valid passport while visa the the expired certificate. Can you please clarify this case?

    No, the visa is still valid even if the passport has expired. Do not attempt to remove the sticker from passport to the other, just bring both to immigration.

    Hi DAvid
    Does that mean that if the passport has expired he would have two passports. I know a turkish gentleman who has two passports because one expired in May 2010. Is this unusual. I thought you could only have one passport at a time.

    Lynne, yes, but if the valid visa is in the expired passport you need to bring that along too.
