I am a dual citizen with an in date UK passport and an Australian passport that has less than 6 months. I have applied for a new Australian Passport but it may not arrive before I am due to go to Bali next week. Can I fly to Bali and return to Perth as and Australian Citizen on a UK passport?

  • Yes, you can. For the details, see the Q&A above. – lambshaanxy May 3 '19 at 9:32

    For clarity, you should return to Australia on your Australian passport. If the airline gives you grief about the validity, show the airline the UK passport, but once landed in Perth, use only your Australian passport. If it's in date at that point, no issue whatsoever, if it's only slightly out of date, then you might get a few extra questions and may not be able to use automated gates (if they have them in Perth!) – Richard May 3 '19 at 9:58

    @jpatokal How is this a duplicate? The question you link explains how Guy can travel with both his UK and Australian passports. But his Australian passport hasn't arrived yet and he's asking about travelling to Australia with only his UK passport. – David Richerby May 3 '19 at 9:59

    @Richard The Australian passport isn't in his possession because it's being renewed. – David Richerby May 3 '19 at 10:00
