I have my IELTS score and WES evaluation with me and I am ready to apply for PR but my current passport will expire in May 2019. If I get the invitation and if everything gets processed timely I will get the PR done by Jan-Feb 2019. My assumption is based on what people have mentioned about processing times lately.
From what I have heard once you apply and get the invitation your passport no. gets locked in with the application and you have to use the same passport for PR stamping. If that’s the case then it doesn’t make sense for me to apply with my current passport. Does anyone if that is the case or if we can change the passport details even after getting the invite?
I have already applied for passport renewal which will take another 3-4 weeks or so. Should I wait for my new passport to come or should I apply with my current passport? Please recommend.
