Hard times in blighty see their Australian Passport office moved to Wellington

By johnboy 3 May 2009 5

The Canberra Times have the astonishing news that the United Kingdom is closing their heavily trafficked Australian passport office and in future if you want a passport (and are already a UK citizen as many of us are) you’ll have to mail your details to Wellington.

Wellington in New Zealand.

Why even bother having a high commission if it’s not going to do basic consular service?

And why bother posting your life’s details across the Tasman instead of going direct to the home office in London?

What’s Your opinion?

Dear God, have we sunk so low?

Thankfully my passport was renewed only two years ago, and hopefully my next one will be an Australian one.

(You can call me “Aussie Bastard” then!)

I read this yesterday and could see no logical reason why they would want to do it.

WTF?? I thought this was a joke post at first. Why Wellington of all places, I wonder.
