Hi Seniors,

I am on PR Visa. I am renewing my passport and need to travel overseas. I will get my new passport before my overseas travel but I will not have enough time to transfer my PR visa to new passport.

Visa transfer to new passport is taking 4 to 6 weeks time as per INZ website.

Can I apply for visa transfer to new passport and then travel overseas with my application of visa transfer still under process?? Or is there a requirement that you cant travel overseas until you have your visa transferred to new passport??

I will appreciate quick response from seniors.
