This is all a great learning experience trying to obtain visas and concurrent passports.
UK was a flat NO unless I had a business reason for travel.
Whilst the Australian Embassy was like “No Problem” you will need to renew your current passport first and then we will issue the 2nd one. All sorted within a week.
I will create a separate page for all the Visa’s and how I obtain them. I have found it extremely frustrating searching the net/forums for how you obtain visas there is so much conflicting information.
So the plan is to document the exact process and timeframes I go through and hopefully it will help others. Please check under The Route Section
